bjam --prefix=/somePath toolset=darwin architecture=arm target-
os=iphone macosx-version=iphone-2.0 define=_LITTLE_ENDIAN link=static

g++-4.0.1': No such file or directory

Any ideas/hints how to build the boost libraries for the iPhone?
(By the way, /usr/bin/arm-apple-darwin9-g++-4.0.1 is existing on my
