It would have if the attachment was actually here ;-)

No worries though... I happen to have run into the same problem as you did
with the way I setup the borland toolset, with the --tool=borland option I
happen to be working on.

The problem was that the library paths for the toolset got set to "" empty
string values which translated to the -L"".

So I've done some changes to the borland.jam tool that might address your
problem. Could you try it out?
