Not good when using dll's.

Yes, but I would wait for Qt4 before doing changes.
I'd like to be able to code the qt-version in the build-path, too.
This is something which could be copied from the upcoming python
toolset. Volodya ?

I workaround this issue by manually changing qt.jam for now.
I'd like to wait for Qt4beta1 and look what has to be changed to get it
working. And then I'll try and hack a set of Jamfiles for qt4
itself ;-))
