Just wanted to thank you Rene for helping me get my head straight on
this. I am compiling now with Boost.Build. I have run into another issue
that I will be posting on the bjam list (thank you for pointing me to

Boost is awesome all by itself, but without the support of the community
for those of us getting our heads around these things, boost would not
be able to grab more users.
