is there a known workaround for issue
http://zigzag.lvk.cs.msu.su:7814/scarab/issues/id/BB37 - 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.
