That's extremely cool! It's great that you've learned enought to write this

No, you're doing this right!

It's supposed to be implemented. When I run

bjam -n release hello

I see "gcc/release/hello" created, so the example you give is a bug.
I'll take a look at it ASAP, but I have some terrible PhD exam tomorrow
and don't know a bit about differential equations, so might have the time
only after I pass it.
