    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_src/index.html#installing
