I did not think I was removing them, justy changing them to produce no
compiler option. It seems a flaw in the system that one cannot specify
generating no compiler option for some Boost Build option(s). What do
you do when some compiler has no equivalent compiler option for a Boost
Build option ?

Thanks, I will give it a try.
