I tried to define it in my jamroot

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

But this gives me an error
c:/Renaud/boost-build/build\feature.jam:431: in feature.validate-value-string from module feature
error: "msvc:<linkflags>/fixed:no" is not a known value of feature <toolset>
error: legal values: "gcc" "msvc"
c:/Renaud/boost-build/build\property.jam:250: in validate1 from module property
c:/Renaud/boost-build/build\property.jam:273: in property.validate from module property

If i define it in the jamfile, it works without problems.
exe opaline3 : main.cpp $(SOURCES) : <toolset>msvc:<linkflags>/fixed:no ;

Ok ! in fact i wanted to group those options as new configurations/variants
and only build with them. I will read the manual a bit more.

Thanks a lot
