I could not confirm this. When I do:
lib m : : <name>m ;
exe a : a.cpp m ;
The command include:
echo "m.lib" >> "bin/msvc-7.1/debug/a.rsp"
which looks right. BTW, in CVS version,
lib m ;
would also work.

I can't confirm this either. With those line, "bjam -n msvc gcc" works just
Are you sure you're using the unmodified CVS version, such as the snapshot
Anything special in your user-config.jam?
