Looks like I dropped that particular ball around here somewhere....

I've committed what I have to cvs HEAD, but note that:

All the targets will compile only with Borland.

With msvc (especially V8) there are some "impossible" targets that will
fail, I haven't tried it lately though: I was waiting to see how bbv2 would
handle impossible-compiler-variants. Has there been any progress on this?

On non-windows platforms we probably shouldn't be bothering building any of
these targets?

Hmmm, just been running the tests, and there are some strange things going

I have some targets that specify impossible variants for msvc (but not for
Borland), for example:

run ../main.cpp link_test
  : : : <define>BOOST_DYN_LINK=1 <link>shared <runtime-link>shared
<threading>single release : link_test_dll_dyn_single_release ;

But the <threading>single seems to just get ignored, and it builds the
<threading>multi variant instead. Is this expected?

On the other hand, this target:

run ../main.cpp link_test
  : : : <link>static <runtime-link>static <threading>single debug :
link_test_static_single_debug ;

which is valid for msvc-7.1 but not msvc-8.0 builds for the former, but not
the latter?

Thanks, John.
