Boost-Build :

Sorry for being a pain, but I just don't seem to be able to get this to

I've used your gccmt.jam file (which seems a lot neater sensible way of
doing it), and did a cvs get and build of boost-build.

bjam -n toolset=gccmeta --debug-generator

boost-build/kernel\class.jam:92: in new
*** argument error
* rule object(gcc-archive-generator)@2.__init__ ( )
* called with: ( gccmt.archive : OBJ : STATIC_LIB : <toolset>gccmt : : :
: : )
* extra argument gccmt.archive

Seems to me that gcc-archive-generator __init__ should really take suitable
arguments (as do the other generators) to allow it to be cloned
appropiately, but then I'm well out of my depth here in bjam.
