Failing to build Boost

Boost - Users mailing list
Hi ,
I am Manav Kumar.
I was trying to install boost version 1.72 on my system Mac OSX. But after installing the package from it’s website and running the ./bootstrap.sh command while being in it’s directory I am getting the following error :-
'
Building Boost.Build engine with toolset clang…
Failed to build Boost.Build build engine
Consult  ‘bootstrap.log’ for more details.

And I am hardly able to understand the bootstrap.log file to figure out the problem.
Somebody please help me with it.
Regards
Manav

You did not copy anything from the bootstrap.log.

Please, follow my suggestion that I made on Slack:

"""
The message suggest to consult the bootstrap.log , well, do it.
If it does not make sense to you, copy it to boost-users
Please, don't send screenshots, just copy as text from terminal and the file
"""

Best regards,
