Hello, all-

I recently attempted to build and install boost 1.31.0 using msys (i.e.,
I enter the boost directory and start bjam with:

    bjam -sTOOL=mingw install

...and then I see bjam invoking vc7 instead of gcc. For example:

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\VC7\bin\cl" ...
followed by many, many errors, as VC7 is not installed on my system.

I don't understand why bjam thinks it should be using VC7.
Can anyone offer any advice or a workaround?

I'm using the latest version of both msys and mingw under Windows 2000, and
mingw is installed *under* msys, if that makes a difference.
