That suggests that BOOST_ROOT is unset, and so the path expands to an empty
This might be the cause of the other problems too?
The best way to debug variable issues is to add a few
ECHO "BOOST_ROOT=" $(BOOST_ROOT) ;
statements so you can see what's happening.
If BOOST_ROOT is an environment variable then something like:
import modules ;
import path ;
boost-root = [ modules.peek : BOOST_ROOT ] ;
might do the trick (if you then use $(boost-root) in the rest of the code).
