No. Libraries are not given during linking command

Not under ELF platform. Unlike with DLLs, you can create shared objects with
undefined symbols, you'll discover this when you'll try to link to some executable.

i.e. this is legal.


       void foo();
       void bar() { foo(); }

    gcc -shared -fPIC test.c -o

Yep. stage/lib/

No, this message is not shown. I had also forgotten to mention one
parameter that I add "--with-regex" as I want boost_regex only

   bjam -d+2 -sHAVE_ICU=1 --with-regex stage

Ok I'll take a look on this file when I get home.
