Thanks, Troy and Doug. I've downloaded the
sandbox-branches/boost-cmake/boost_1_34_0 yesterday.
It's a great help to have some actual code to compare
with the existing bjam code. However, I think the following

<------- cut here ----------
# Creates a new executable from source files.
# boost_add_executable(exename
# source1 source2 ...
# [COMPILE_FLAGS compileflags]
# [feature_COMPILE_FLAGS compileflags]

# [feature_LINK_FLAGS linkflags]
# [LINK_LIBS linklibs]
# [feature_LINK_LIBS linklibs]
# [DEPENDS libdepend1 libdepend2 ...]
# [feature]
# several cases, we use the placeholder "feature" in the option name

# root of the Boost distribution, which defines the set of features
# that will be used to build Boost libraries by default.

tools/build/CMake/BoostCore.cmake may need updating based on the ]
following grep FLAGS output:

<------- cut here ----------
grep FLAGS CMakeLists.txt

I had expected to see some tokens ending with _LINK_FLAGS or
_COMPILE_FLAGS corresponding to the feature_COMPILE_FLAGS and
feature_LINK_FLAGS in the first part of the above comment.

Of course we know you're still working on it, but I just didn't
want this to be accidentally missed.

Thanks again.
