Boost-Build :

I have a couple of questions about boost build and bjam

a) I have Commeau compiler installed. It seems to compile the
jamfiles correctly but I unresolved symbols with the link. I
have been able to compile, link and execute small test projects
so I believe the Commeau system is working (win32) I'm using
bjam -sTOOL=como-win23. Is the Comeau jam tools known to work?

b) what's the jamfile and/or command line syntax to generate
a release build rather than debug one?

c) Re the MSVC tool jam file: For release mode, it doesn't seem that
the the switch /Gy (enable function level linking). This switch
is used to increase module granularity to the function level, thereby
making executables no larger than necessary. I think the jam tools
for msvc should include this compile time swith for release level.
