I've posted this on the boost build forums, but never got a response, so I'm
hoping someone in this group can help me.

I've spent several days banging my head with iostream zlib support on
windows. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to get this to
compile. This is on a windows XP machine with Microsoft VS 2003.

I've installed the zlib source at C:\dev\zlib and set the appropriate
command line arguments (I believe anyway) to point to it. However, it
continues to give me an error of "unknown dependent target

If I remove the zlib command line arguments, the boost library builds fine.
Can anyone please explain what I'm doing wrong? I'm sure it is something
simple, but I cannot figure it out. I looked at the jam file regarding this
and it seems to indicate that it will compile zlib automatically. But
apparently that isn't happening.

The complete output from the command window follows. Thanks in advance for
any help!

You can configure the location of your python installation by setting:
PYTHON_VERSION - The 2-part python Major.Minor version number (e.g.
                 "2.2", NOT "2.2.1") - currently "2.4"

PYTHON_ROOT - automatically configured from PYTHON_VERSION if not
                 otherwise set ; currently "c:/Python24"

The following are automatically configured from PYTHON_ROOT if not otherwise
