Thanks for figuring that out. I noticed this awhile back and it was
less than obvious to me what was happening. I've checked in a fix for
the Jamfile. I also changed the name of the library to remove the
redundant 'lib' in the name. And I have checked in changes to
explicitly construct an std::string for greg_weekday and others.
Hopefully this will resolve the Kylix problems.
