Subject: [boost] Boost 1.54 build problem: --without-context not honoured?
From: Steve M. Robbins (steve_at_[hidden])

I'm digging into a build problem and noticed that even though I specify
"./bjam --without-context", Boost.Context is still built! The bjam
configuration output states that Context is not to be built:

Component configuration:

    - atomic : building
    - chrono : building
    - context : not building
    - coroutine : building
    - date_time : building
    - exception : building

But it is built nonetheless. This causes a build failure for architectures
which are not supported; see build log [1]. Compare that to the build for
1.53 [2] which works fine.

I've diffed the libs/context directory between 1.53 and 1.54 and nothing jumps
out at me as the cause. Has anyone noticed and fixed this already?
