cc toolset broken

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Vladimir Prus
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: build
Version: Boost 1.66.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


I want to build Boost using the cc toolset. It bootstraps fine, but the build system fails to find the toolset when I run b2.

$ export CC=gcc
$ ./ --with-toolset=cc
-n Building Boost.Build engine with toolset cc... 
-n Detecting Python version... 
-n Detecting Python root... 
-n Unicode/ICU support for Boost.Regex?... 
not found.
Backing up existing Boost.Build configuration in project-config.jam.6
Generating Boost.Build configuration in project-config.jam...

Bootstrapping is done. To build, run:

To adjust configuration, edit 'project-config.jam'.

comment:6 Changed 4 years ago by dmorneau@…

The cc toolset is the one that uses $CC to determine the command to call to compile, useful to bootstrap with a specific gcc. I've hit this problem as well with 1.55.0.
