I am trying to upgrade from Boost 1.30.0 to 1.31.0. My main interest is
in the Regex library. I was pleased to build its libraries successfully
for intel-linux, both .a and .so forms, using bjam.

When trying to build the libraries for mipspro, it fails to build the .a
forms, because it is trying to use ranlib. The bjam system is too
unfamiliar to me to debug it, so I'm hoping somebody else can give me a
remedy. (Note: I built bjam from the source in tools/build/jam_src, as
described in the docs.)

Here is the evidence:
