First try failed: C:/boost/develop/tools/build/src/tools\gcc.jam:293: in
ERROR: rule "cygwin.cygwin-to-windows-path" unknown in module "gcc".

I deleted "local" from cygwin.jam line 36, so it read "rule
cygwin-to-windows-path ( path )" and then tried again.
That failed with the message:
C:/boost/develop/tools/build/src/build\toolset.jam:43: in toolset.using
ERROR: rule "cygwin.init" unknown in module "toolset".

Thanks for working on this,
