Boost :

 I am building BOOST using as follows (build goes fine):

on the command prompt:
cmd>bjam --toolset=msvc
cmd>bjam --toolset=msvc --prefix=e:\boost install

The installed libraries have "vc" instead of "vc71". The auto_link.hpp
tries to link to libraries with "vc71". Is this a known issue?

I try to build using the --layout=system as:
cmd>bjam --toolset=msvc --layout=system
cmd>bjam --toolset=msvc --layout=system install

The copied libraries have libname-mt.lib (ex: boost_thread-mt.lib). To
link with non-versioned plain libraries, I define

This tries to link with libname.lib (ex: boost_thread.lib) and that
file will not be there. Is there something else I need to do or is it
a known problem with this BETA?

with best regards,
