Oh if things were only that easy! :)

This is unfortunatelly not an option.
We are talking about debugging applications which have hundreds or
milions of lines of code that take many hours to compile link etc.
Sometimes it is necessary to do this debugging live, and with all of the
libraries being debug the performance may be unnaceptable.

That would be fine, also.

Yes, I already do that in my makefile I sent.

But can you still use the --prefix etc command line params?
And what about a complete test suite, that builds & runs all of the
I saw a Jamfile under tools/status that seems to do that, perhaps I can
reuse it?


So my final few questions are:
1) Is there an agglomerated Jamfile that has all the tests already in
2) Is it possible to give the --prefix etc. command line params to the
3) [Unaswered from previous email] Is it possible to ONLY build the
shared objects without the archives?
4) If the above aren't, do you think they would be reasonable feature
requests for some future version of
5) Am I asking too many questions? ;)

Once again, thanks for your help.
