Boost-Build :

I am currently learning boost.Build and have a few questions:

1. I tried to get boost.Build to hardcode (-rpath) a prebuilt lib
into an executable:

lib boost-unit-test
: <name>boost_unit_test_framework
: <include>/somePath/boost_1_30_0

I noticed that both <search> as well as <library-path> add a "-L" flag
to the linker's command line. What's the difference between the two?

<dll-path> seems to trigger the -rpath option. If dll-path is not set,
but <library-path> is set, no -rpath option is generated. Is that

2. Is there a global pseudotarget that I can use in order to run all
the unit tests in a project tree? "bjam test" or "bjam tests" didn't

Many thanks & very best wishes
