Our support for Mac OS X wasn't all that great in 1.31.0; I think it
should work. We're getting better now that more developers are using
Mac OS X as their primary development machines, although Tiger is so
new that it might not support it perfectly yet.

You need to pass "-sTOOLS=darwin" on the bjam command line. Darwin is
different enough that we have a different compiler configuration
("toolset") for it.

You might have better luck with Boost 1.32.0.
