Boost-Build :

is there a known workaround for issue - cleaning too much?

Summary: Running "bjam --clean" will remove all targets in dependency
graph. It's quite confusing when
targets in other projects are removed, so we either need to change this
behaviour, or give an option.

On a related note - how do you rebuild an executable that was once
successfully built when you change some options in the Jamfile (adding
some flags, defines...). Running 'bjam -a the_app' will rebuild
*everything*, including ie all boost libraries and every library that's
built using bjam. The only thing I was able to come up with was to go
looking in the deep directory hierarchy created by bjam and remove the
executable by hand :(.

Thanks for any insights.
