Boost-Build :

From: Vladimir Prus (ghost_at_[hidden])

the code which is responsible to v1 install of Boost, in top-level Jamfile,
uses HardLink to create links to shared libraries on Unix:

HardLink $(noversion-file) : $(version-file) ;

Why hard link is used? I always though symlink should be used; all libraries
use symlinks on my system.

Any comments?
