I am trying to build the tutorial example showing how to call a c++
function from a python script. When I run bjam I get the following message.
I am using MSVC++ 2005 Express Edition.

I created a user-config.jam file in my home directory.
Its contents are below.

# MSVC configuration
using msvc : 8.0 ;

# Python configuration
using python : 2.5 : C:/Program Files/Python25 ;


I got bjam from boost-jam-3.1.16-1-ntx86.

Where should the dll that should be produced go?
