You're welcome. Well, the point is that I think bjam V2 will be superior
to qmake. And I'm happy to contribute a little to the develop.

Well, hardcoding the library-path is always good, at least for
development. I guess this should either be made default or a
configuration switch.

Multithreaded Qt depends on a multithreaded configuration. The qt
toolset should select qt-mt depending on the feature <threading>multi.
So no autodetect is needed.

Yes. Works for me.

I'll try out later. Maybe this evening I fear. Have to get some work

I think I have to take a look into Jam docs again.
But having STLport around would be a great help.
