Yes. Same with mine. I posted this information for BBv2, so v2 gets it
right :).

There are also a few other deprecated switches (like GS, I think). These
have also been taken into account on BBv2, they just haven't filtered
over to v1.

Also, as an aside, when I build a program with BBv2 using VC8, I get
warnings of the form:

: warning C4996: 'strncat' was declared deprecated
         C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
8\VC\include\string.h(114) : see declaration of 'strncat'

The deprecated symbol warning should preferably be disabled via
Boost.Build for this release (1.32) with the aim of possibly resolving
them at some point during the preparation for the next (1.33) release.
