...failed gcc-Link-action

-L"" cause to loss one object file instead of add "empty path" to lib-lookups table.

caused by these lines from mingw-tools.jam
    # So that RUNPATH, and PATH, is set to include where the mingw DLLs are located.
    flags mingw STDLIBPATH : $(GCC_BIN_DIRECTORY) ;

workaround is to pass "-sMINGW_ROOT_DIRECTORY=/mingw" to bjam invocation (i'm using msys), but documentation says
MINGW_ROOT_DIRECTORY Path to installation of MinGW. (none) If not set tools must be available in the executable path
so it isn't obligatory to pass that argument.
