Check the thread again. He's using Visual Studio.

I hope to be able to provide Visual Studio project files in the
future, but right now I don't have time to produce such a thing for
the project.

I'd be happy to; he should bring his Boost.Build questions to the
boost-build list if possible.

That won't help much. Perforce Jam is an almost entirely different
beast from Boost.Build.

No offense intended to Mr. Carew, but you'll be doing yourself a favor
if you ignore that advice. Perforce Jam is mostly irrelevant and most
people who look at it expecting to be helped with Boost.Build end up
very confused.
