As I've said previously, one of the problems is that Boost.Build does not
use 'xerces' in any way, but does not warn about it. The CVS now
contains a fix and a test for this: any source target which is not used will
generate a warning.
Regarding the other issue, linking a library into a library, I'll have to do
some more research. In particular:
1. Is it possible to link two static libraries together with GNU ar
2. Is there are way to link shared library into static one (seems impossible
Or you know the answers off-hand?
