Thanks a lot, i read it and it gave me a good vision of what to

/fixed:no is needed by purify/quantify, it's about relocation
but i don't know exaclty what it is. It is a linker option.

After your advices (and reading /tools/builtin.jam), i defined
a new variant/configuration in my jamroot

variant crazy : profile : <linkflags>/fixed:no ;

No i can profile all my projects easily. Is there a way to say
that variant crazy means <linkflags>/fixed:no with msvc and something
else with another toolset (i use gcc for syntax checking) ?

Perhaps you should add in the migration guide, how to create
new variants/configurations. It seems to be very easy.

I also have another problem/question, if i would like to use whole
program optimizations (cxxflags /GL and linkflags /LTGC), should i
define a new variant or is there a direct way to do it ?
