allyourbase.jam file is bad.

Reported by: nobody Owned by: david_abrahams
Milestone: Component: None
Version: None Severity:
Keywords: Cc:


It appears that lines 1608 thru 1618 of allyourbase.jam
file does not correspond to existing FTjam 2.3.5
version they read:

rule remember-binding ( target : bound-path ) {
    gBINDING($(target)) = $(bound-path) ;

rule subst-list ( list + : pattern ) {
    local result ;
    for local i in $(list) {
        result += [ SUBST $(i) $(pattern) "$1" ] ;
    return $(result) ;

These appear to be tailored to a "special jam" program.

in the boost distribution.
