Problem build Boost.Python


Hi,

Pardon my stupid, but I'm having a problem building Boost.Python as
per the instructions at
http://www.boost.org/libs/python/doc/building.html

I got boost-build-2.0-m6.zip from sourceforge and build bjam.exe.

I've tried several ways:

bjam -a
bjam -sTOOLS="msvc"
bjam -sTOOLS=msvc

I tried with and without the using msvc ; in user-config.jam.

In every case I get:

C:/Project/boost/tools\boostbook.jam:86: in boostbook.init
*** argument error
* rule path.make ( native )
* called with: ( )
* missing argument native
C:/Project/boost/new\path.jam:42:see definition of rule 'path.make'
being called

C:/Project/boost/new\toolset.jam:22: in using
C:\Project\boost\new\../new\user-config.jam:58: in modules.load
C:/Project/boost\build-system.jam:55: in load
C:\Project\boost\new\..\kernel\modules.jam:296: in import
C:\Project\boost\new\..\kernel\bootstrap.jam:122: in boost-build
C:\Project\boost\new\boost-build.jam:2: in module scope
Can anyone help?

It is possible to build Boost.Python under Boost.Build-2.0, but not
using those instructions. Boost.Build v1 is still the official build
system of Boost for the time being.

[Boost.Build guys, do we need to rename the BBv2 prerelease so this
confusion doesn't recur?]

It looks like you're on windows, so you should either get the
precompiled executable in bjam-3.1.4-2-ntx86.zip, or visit the
tools/build/jam_src subdirectory of your Boost installation and invoke
build.bat as per
http://www.boost.org/tools/build/jam...tml#installing

bjam -a
bjam -sTOOLS="msvc"
bjam -sTOOLS=msvc
