I don't like the idea to add a dummy cpp-file. I tried to use <build>no but
without success.
I'm still wondering why on of your test systems (9.0~wm5~stlport5.2 ==
Windows CE 5 ?) gracefully fails (with message 'platform not supported')
and the other one does fail without any information (at least at thre
regression test page). Does bjam segfault or do you get some
I've removed an unreferenced alias from Jamfile.v2 - but it would be
suspicious if this would have caused the error.
