Subject: [Boost-users] questions (compiling v1.39)

Hi all,

I'm hadn't been following the development of Boost's installation
process and just went from 1.38 to 1.39 and realized the steps that I
had written down no longer work. :-) I'm glad that the process was
being looked into, but could someone help me with a couple of things?

First, I use mpi and use to edit $BOOST/user-config.jam and put "using
mpi ;" at the end to get it to compile. I didn't do this and I got a
similar warning as before even though I ran:

./ --with-libraries=graph,mpi,program_options,serialization

Does "mpi" in it have no effect? After it finished, it seems the other
3 were made, but not mpi. Should I add "using mpi ;" still? [In
$BOOST, I now notice there is no user-config.jam but a project-config.jam.]

And the other thing I use to do was to edit the Makefile by adding
"--layout=system" so that the generated libraries do not indicate the
compiler version. (I did read the discussion earlier this month and I'm
now wondering if it's bad practice to do this? I would like instead of .)

How do I do this with

Thank you!
