what's the officially supported way of linking a boost library
with an external project that uses boost::build?
Say I have my own project foo that wants to link to the boost
thread library. I have set up everything so that I can compile
the project but I can't see how to link to the thread lib.
exe foo : foo.cpp : <sysinclude>$(BOOST_ROOT) ;
I tried to add
hoping that bjam would find the right thread lib on it's own
but that doesn't work as it just adds -l<...>/build/boost_thread
to the linker command line not taking into account the variants.
Next I tried to add
<lib>$(BOOST_ROOT)/libs/thread/build/boost_thread to the
sources but this doesn't work either because bjam doesn't
find threads.jam which is included from the Jamfile in the
thread build directory.
