Hi Rene,

I'm having a similar error as Stefan, but with xml.jam:

in load
ERROR: rule "Copyright" unknown in module "xml".

When that xml.jam edited to replace comments delimited with:


the error msg moved to the sass-type.xml where the same type of comments

So, I'd guess I'm using an old b2; however, I just did the install as
instructed here:

and provided a symlink to the b2 executable:

evansl_at_lje-DL:~/bin$ ln -s

and my PATH includes ~/bin.

When I did the ./, it produced only warning:

debugger.c: In function ‘debug_mi_format_breakpoint’:
debugger.c:1837:13: warning: zero-length gnu_printf format string
      printf( "" );
debugger.c: In function ‘debug_list_read’:
debugger.c:165:5: warning: ignoring return value of ‘fscanf’, declared
with attribute warn_unused_result [-Wunused-result]
      fscanf( in, "%d", &len );

in the bootstrap.log.

How should this problem be solved?
