Hi, list members.
I am trying to build Boost (1_32_0) using intel/Windows
compiler, but no dice.
Following the steps in the "Getting started"
guide, I chose to set up the
environment variables, i.e. approach 2.1 So I
pull up a command window,
navigate to the intel directory, and run iclvars to
establish the intel
directory is in the PATH. It adds a bunch of items to the
path, so it seems
Then, I navigate to
boost\boost_1_32_0\boost\1_32_0 where bjam.exe lives. I
use it as-received, as it seemed there was no point in
building it locally.
Invocation to make Boost libraries I used
bjam "-sTOOLS=intel-win32" install
What I get is odd: first, a
skipping Boost.Python library build due to missing or incorrect
couldn't find python.h in
THis is puzzling to me: there is no Python
setup on this machine - and why
should Boost (a c++ package) be looking to
create Python libraries? anyhow,
there is a bit more info about various
PYTHON_xxxx variables that I could set
to configure the python
Then, it gets into the c++ compilation, and all these fail.
that is shown in the command window is (for
is not recognized as an internal or external comand,
operable program or
/Zm800 -nologo /EHsc -c
To me (who doesn't
understand bjam), it seems that bjam has invoked the VC
compiler rather than
the intel compiler (which has an invocation of icl, IIRC).
Anyhow, it looks
like the compiler is hollering about the /Zm800 option,
which is not a legal option for the intel compiler, though it
is for VS 7.1.
This error then repeats several hundred times, once for
each file for which
compilation is attempted.
I suspect there is some
very simple thing I am overlooking, but I've tried to
follow every step in
the "Getting Started" guide.
Does anyone suggestions on what is wrong
here? I'm stumped, and would
appreciate any help or thoughts on how to chase
