1) g++ is in the path. Doing the g++ --version
displays the version information:
C:\opt\boost_1_31_0>g++ --version

2) Mingw is installed in the default directory:

Does the fact that I got a warning about spawnvp
function when I built bjam has something to do with

C:\opt\boost-jam-3.1.10>.\bootstrap.mingw\jam0 -f
build.jam --toolset=mingw "--t
oolset-root= "
...found 83 targets...
...updating 4 targets...
.cc. bin.ntx86\yyacc.exe
.cc. bin.ntx86\mkjambase.exe
.cc. bin.ntx86\jam.exe
execnt.c: In function `execcmd':
execnt.c:651: warning: passing arg 3 of `spawnvp' from
incompatible pointer type

execnt.c:682: warning: passing arg 3 of `spawnvp' from
incompatible pointer type

.link. bin.ntx86\bjam.exe
        1 file(s) copied.
...updated 4 targets...

I read somewhere something about different signatures
for the spawn function and this indicates the one used
by bjam is not the one that mingw supports.

Why would spawn fail? Is this an OS issue or a
compiler thing? Is bjam the program that fails? Or is
it a python script that fails? How can I trace this

I really appreciate your help,
