What do you suggest as a solution? I agree that autodetection with no
way to override it is bad. (In my not yet finished CMake guidelines, I
advocate for only using autodetection to determine the default for
the configuration option, while still allowing the user to override it.)
But how does this translate to something actionable? How would you
have written the Nowide build/Jamfile?
