I was wondering if anyone would help me I'm trying to build the mpi library from boost 1_55_0 however I am running into trouble. When building with bjam I run into an MPI auto-detection failed. I have included the error message below:

MPI auto-detection failed: unknown wrapper compiler /usr/local/bin/mpic++
Please report this error to the Boost mailing list: http://www.boost.org
You will need to manually configure MPI support.
link.jam: No such file or directory

You’ll need to give us more information.  Can you send the user-config.jam and all the command line output  starting with b2 invocation (run 'b2 -d+2' so we get additional debug output).  Also, what c++ compiler and version, what MPI and version are you using.
