When you asked me to run the following lines:
     bjam -f- "-sTOOLS=mingw" install
     ECHO $(TOOLS) ;
I see the following:
     bjam -f- "-sTOOLS=mingw" install
(hundreds of lines of error text go by here)

     ECHO $(TOOLS) ;
reply is:
        sh: ./TOOLS: is a directory

...and nothing is displayed after entering ctrl-Z :)

The reply to ECHO $(TOOLS) ; seems odd. I doubt that this is what you were
expecting. There *is* a 'tools' directory under boost_1_31_0, but not a
'TOOLS' directory. Case-sensitivity issues?

I have also run the following:
     bjam -d+5 "-sTOOLS=mingw" install > bug.out

Note that not everything is captured in 'bug.out'. I see hundreds of lines
of the following on the console:
     The system cannot find the path specified.
This is not surprising as I don't have VC7 installed.

Unfortunately I don't have a place to publicly park the compressed 'bug.out'
file so I will email it directly to you. However, here's the first few lines
if that's of any help.

(BEGIN LISTING===============)

skipping Boost.Python library build due to missing or incorrect

couldn't find Python.h in "c:/tools/python/include"

You can configure the location of your python installation by setting:
PYTHON_ROOT - currently "c:/tools/python"
PYTHON_VERSION - The 2-part python Major.Minor version number (e.g.
                 "2.2", NOT "2.2.1") - currently "2.2"

The following are automatically configured from PYTHON_ROOT if not
otherwise set:

    PYTHON_LIB_PATH - path to Python library object; currently
...found 5266 targets...
...updating 632 targets...

    CALL "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
2003\VC7\bin\VCVARS32.BAT" >nul
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\VC7\bin\cl" /Zm800
-DBOOST_ALL_DYN_LINK=1 /Z7 /Od /Ob0 /GX /GR /MDd /Op /Zc:forScope
/Zc:wchar_t -I"bin\boost\libs\date_time\build"

...failed vc-C++

(SNIP============== as this error apparently occurs for every single file)

Best regards,
Chris Brewer
