Why don't you log the calls to the compiler and the linker? (E.g.,
`bjam -d2 -sTOOLS=gcc install 2>&1 | tee boost-build.log') If the command line
shows an explicit `-L /usr/lib' then there's certainly a problem.

But I doubt it: I regularly build the Boost libraries (with the default build
system) with gcc 3.4.2 installed in a non-default directory. (The system
compiler is gcc 3.3.1 with in /usr/lib.) I never experienced
the problems you describe.
