Boost-Build :

I'm sorry but I've been hit by this so many times I'm getting close to

Why oh why does the msvc toolset inject the compilers own include paths into
the command line? If I add a <sysinclude>/foo/bar to a project I expect it
to over-ride the compilers own search path. But Oh no the toolset knows
better and injects the compilers search path onto the command line *before*
the <sysinclude> path. Given that the compiler is set up correctly already
by invoking the vcvars32.bat file this is just so completely unnecessary!

I haven't looked to see if bbv2 does the same thing, but please *please* can
this be changed?

Many thanks,
