Thanks for the information.

I managed to make the library once I stopped using bjam and simply ran the
commands myself one at a time. Not really sure why!

cxx -D__USE_STD_IOSTREAM -DNDEBUG -I../../../ -c exception.cpp
cxx -D__USE_STD_IOSTREAM -DNDEBUG -I../../../ -c operations_posix_windows.cpp
cxx -D__USE_STD_IOSTREAM -DNDEBUG -I../../../ -c path_posix_windows.cpp
cxx -D__USE_STD_IOSTREAM -DNDEBUG -I../../../ -c convenience.cpp
ar -rs libboost_filesystem.a *.o cxx_repository/*.o

And when I compiled my own program using that library afterwards it runs
just fine. Not sure why it had such a problem when running through bjam...

I had actually had success building the library under my linux machine, but
was trying to reproduce that success on our alpha servers -- it's
definitely much more difficult getting it to work there! But I got it in
the end (with help!)

Thanks alot,
