boost-build failed to build engine Red Hat 4.1.2 and GCC 4.1.2

I am trying to build boost 1.50.0 for Red Hat 4.1.2 with GCC 4.1.2,
It continues to fail at:
gcc -o bootstrap/jam0 command.c compile.c constants.c debug.c function.c glob.c hash.c hdrmacro.c headers.c jam.c jambase.c jamgram.c lists.c make.c make1.c object.c option.c output.c parse.c pathunix.c regexp.c rules.c scan.c search.c subst.c timestamp.c variable.c modules.c strings.c filesys.c builtins.c pwd.c class.c native.c md5.c w32_getreg.c modules/set.c modules/path.c modules/regex.c modules/property-set.c modules/sequence.c modules/order.c execunix.c fileunix.c
jam.c: In function ‘executable_path’:
jam.c:656: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function ‘strndup’
./bootstrap/jam0 -f build.jam --toolset=gcc --toolset-root= clean
I've checked that jam.c has <string.h> and that string.h has strndup()
the function executable_path() returns the result of strndup() directly.
So I do not understand where this is coming from, any help would be appreciated, thanks.
Note: This is on a work server so boost is being installed to /home/my_user_account/bin/ as I don't have administrator privileges. I start with ./ --prefix=/home/my_user_account/bin as per the documentation for boost-build

Probably check out, how others managed to build boost_1_50_0. > Advanced Search : boost-1.50.0
>> boost-1.50.0-1.src.rpm source code package.
>> There's a patch included : boost-link.patch

cd boost_1_50_0/ && patch -p1 < boost-link.patch && ./ && ./b2
→ → No errors on EL5. (The 'gcc-c++' package must be installed.)

It's just a warning, it shouldn't stop build. Anyway, try this (before configure):
