While trying to run the tests for the MS vc6 compiler I found that the
build is aborted when trying to build the serialization test.
When I put toolset::require-boost-spirit-support into the Jamfile the
build is correctly skipped instead of aborted.
My version below:
rule sc-serialization-test ( name : requirements * )
: : :
Since I do not yet know boost.build very good, I cannot tell if this
works by accident or if it is correct. I figured this out by comparison
with similar cases from other libs. I suspect this issue is not specific to
the vc6 build, but might fail in other cases too.
If there are no objections I will check this into CVS. (After the
