Okay. That's completely normal and I have no
idea why is failing for you. I can't
reproduce the problem.
The first line of the output of ./
should be
Building Boost.Build engine with toolset gcc...
Is that correct?

If not, the in on line 147, the condition
should be true, and should set TOOLSET by
calling .../ --guess-toolset. I can't see any reason
why it wouldn't work. I also can't see any reason why
TOOLSET would get unset later.

Hmm. What is /bin/sh? I get:
[steven_at_localhost boost_1_53_0]$ /bin/sh --version
GNU bash, version 4.2.45(1)-release-(x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu)

Anyway, if you don't mind spending more time on this,
you can try adding echos to to figure
out where it goes wrong. I'm afraid there's not
much I can myself do without being able to reproduce it.

In Christ,
