Hmm... true, I have not idea what linkers are used on SGI or Tru64 machines
and whether they accept -R, as GNU ld does. OTOH, as it stands now,
<dll-path> feature is just broken on Solaris, and Boost.Build users use
Solaris, but not SGI or Tru64.

I'd be happy if you send the patch -- unless somebody has a greater solution
that will be guaranteed to work on all systems.
