Hi Jürgen,

Sorry that it took some time to reply -- I was buried in massive refactoring
of some code -- and as usual, it took more time than planned.

Hmm... I'll try to get cygwin myself asap, and look what's up.

That's really strange:

module object(prebuilt-file-generator)@1
error: Unknown type for prebuilt target qt in qt

The 'prebuilt' generator should be invoked only if there <file> property and I
don't see any use of it in my copy of qt.jam. Are you sure you don't have any
local modifications?

If not, maybe you can create a minimal example (or try "examples/qt"). It it
fails, too, the output of "bjam --debug-generators" can be good help in
fixing the problem.

In theory that's fine. On Windows we prepend slashes so that it's easy to tell
if path is rooted or not. But... see below

Looking at qt.jam I'd say that it passes value of QTDIR unmodified. It even
does not import the 'path' module. I don't know what to think.
