Hi guys,


I’m cross-compiling Boost for a Linux distro on an ARM board. I'm using windows with Boost 1.47.

My project-config.jam contains the following:

import option ; 

using gcc : arm : "C:/Program Files (x86)/CodeSourcery/Sourcery G++ Lite/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi-g++" ;
option.set keep-going : false ;

And I'm building with the command:

bjam toolset=gcc-arm target-os=linux

Whilst .o objects are building just fine, .a builds are failing usually with something like:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeSourcery\Sourcery G++ Lite\bin"

"bin.v2\libs\wav e\build\gcc-arm\release\link-static\target-os-linux\threading-multi\libboost_wav e-gcc-mt-1_47.a"

...failed gcc.archive bin.v2\libs\wave\build\gcc-arm\release\link-static\target- os-linux\threading-multi\libboost_wave-gcc-mt-1_47.a... ...skipped libboost_wave-gcc-mt-1_47.a for lack of libboost_wav e-gcc-mt-1_47.a... ...failed updating 23 targets... ...skipped 28 targets... ...updated 641 targets...

I am also getting quote a few of the following error messages:

'"C:\Program Files (x86)\CodeSourcery\Sourcery G++ Lite\bin"' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Any ideas guys?

Many thanks
