This is *very* strange. You appear to be doing everything right.
Could you please enter the following lines:

     bjam -f- "-sTOOLS=mingw" install
     ECHO $(TOOLS) ;

Note the space before the semicolon. ^Z means control-Z on your
keyboard. Post the output here.

Also do:

     bjam -d+5 "-sTOOLS=mingw" install > bug.out

and then *compress* bug.out and post it on some FTP site or web page
and tell us where to get it. If you can't make it available for
download, please email the result to me privately (compressed).
