Hi Vladimir,

I was really glad receiving your mail.

When I first thought about the globbing rule I expected that I have to use
it exactly that way, i.e. relative to the current 'source directory'. So this is pretty
fine for me.

This would be fine. If you could send me a patch it would be perfect.

Ok, now I have a more general question about the state of the
boost v2 build system. Is there any schedule when BBv2 will
replace BBv1 as the offical boost build system. What are
the show stoppers? I'm unsure whether I should build my
project with one of the following tools:

BBv1, BBv2, SCons or CMake

What is your opinion?

With best regards
