Subject: [boost] bjam - help please

Since I'm trying to Boostify (is that a legitimate word now? - heck
you can verb anything these days) my code, I decided to try bjam:

Gulp, having been weaned on automake and fiends [sic] it looks like
it should be easy enough, but I've fallen at the first hurdle:

In Jamroot:
using gcc : 4.4 : g++-4 ;
exe example_basic
     : example_basic.cpp
     : <include>. ;

The <include>. line, as I understand it will mean the #include <blah>
that I use will pick up stuff in the same directory as the source
file (this seems ok).

My problem is the link stage,

$ bjam example_basic
...found 53 targets...
...updating 1 target... bin/gcc-4.4/debug/example_basic
/usr/bin/ld: unknown flag: --start-group
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

     "g++-4" -o "bin/gcc-4.4/debug/example_basic" -Wl,--start-
group "bin/gcc-4.4/debug/example_basic.o" -Wl,-Bstatic -Wl,-
Bdynamic -Wl,--end-group -g

...failed bin/gcc-4.4/debug/example_basic...

I've no idea where all this --start-group stuff comes from -- never
seen it before.

Any ideas?
