Boost-Build :

I have been experimenting with using bjam as an alternative to a
make-based build system for an open source project. The original make
system uses the following (seemingly standard) naming convention for
cygwin targets:

static lib: libfoo.a
import lib: libfoo.dll.a
dll : cygfoo.dll

However, from what I can tell both v1 and v2 of the bjam cygwin
toolsets (which shipped in boost 1.31.0) use the following different

static lib: libfoo.a
import lib: <not created>
dll : libfoo.dll

Is this correct? If so, do you know how would I go about generating
the implib and the final build target with the appropriate name?

Many thanks,

Simon Julier
