  What /exactly/ did you try? Do you get
the same error or a different error?

The colon shouldn't be causing any problems.

  -d5 is totally useless. If you really want
that kind of information I suggest you try
out the debugger (build b2 from the debug
branch and run it with -dconsole. The
interface is based on gdb).
