How do I link pre-built libraries that are external to my build system
(no jam file, no rule for them), and also not available with

I tried to set the 'LINKLIBS" variable just before my exe rule like

LINKLIBS = /sw/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.a ;

But this doesn't work (even though the Jam reference said it would).

How is this done?
