oh but what I was thinking about would make an even more interesting
testcase. The project I've send you is just the basic layer (or
framework). On top of that we have another big project that generates
real useable executables. What's interesting is that this second project
thus uses the inter-project dependencies (which are realllll nice).
Using the whole bunch would also result in a much bigger test-case ;-).
Anyway let me know. But coming to think of it I can easily remove the
exterior dependencies because all jamfiles are generated using a
python-script so I just need some minor changes in this script. What
this script basically does is look for the direct dependencies between
the different libraries. So users never need to write a jamfile and
circular dependencies between libraries are automatically detected.
