Actually, there's a gotcha with borland that I've found when addressing your
earlier email. -L switches have no effect in response file. So I've changed
the code so that it does not emit -L switches to response file, but
passes everything needed via -L option in the command line.

The key line is

toolset.flags LIBRARY_PATH <library-path> ;

which should correctly set varible LIBRARY_PATH, used in "link" action. I've
just tested it again and it seem to work. So I'm really looking for the files
you forgot to attach :-)
