I can't get the Boost Library built. (still)
I can see three threads of action, that can end with usable library:
1. The configure/make thread.
This is what Earnie suggested,
Problem: After running "configure", there is no makefile left. So command
"make" doesn't work.
What I have after "configure" is "user.hpp" file.
As far as I can see the problem is Boost's-directory-independent.
2. The default, suggested by Boost itself way.
The Boost Web Page suggests to use "bjam" utility - but it fails as well,
producing a very long list of errors about missing headers. Note, that my
MinGW is installed properly, with all environment variables set to the right
directories. This problem has been reported by other users.
3. Download the binary version of the Boost library?
Where can I get them? Would they work? I have x86 Duron procesor, running
I guess, that the solution must be simple, as the Boost library is one of
the most popular C++ libraries that exists.
Thanks for your help,
