Boost-Build :

I have a question that seems to me it should be really obvious, transparent
and easy. In fact, I think I've asked it before. If I have, I apologise in

I'm updating the Jamfile for boost serialization.

There are certain tests which I know cannot pass with certain toolsets. For
example, Mingw doesn't support wide character and so those test that depend
on wide char i/o will fail. Another example, comeau can't be used to build
a DLL. Given this, it seems pointless to even build or run them.

How can the Jamfile be arranged to reflect this?

I'm thinking I should beable to include in the requirements of a target
something like

! <toolset>como-win32<target-type>DLL

But that is only a ver wild guess.
