OK I finally got around to trying a cygwin build of some docs, and didn't
get very far:

* By default Boost.Filesystem expects Win32 paths when built under cygwin,
but those paths don't work from within quickbook (which presumably expects
or gets passed cygwin style paths?). I see:

Generating Output File: ../../bin.v2/doc/test/gcc-mingw-3.4.4/debug/test.xml
assertion "streams.empty()" failed: file
"c:\data\boost\boost\trunk\tools\quickbook\detail\collector.cpp", line 46

* I modified quickbook so that it was built against a special
Boost.Filesystem build that used cygwin paths and got the following error:

Starting program:
 -I"../.." --output-file="../../bin.v2/doc/test/gcc-mingw-3.4.4/debug/test.xml"

Anyone any ideas?

Cheers, John.
