Thanks Volodya, using <source> works. I also tried your suggestion of using:
generators.register-linker mex.mex : CPP C OBJ SEARCHED_LIB STATIC_LIB IMPORT_LIB :
This basically worked the same as before -- and still did not propagate thelibrary
features. :-(

Also, another question: is there some way to require that when building with gcc or
darwin, the library I am trying to link to *must* be the one built using the gcc-3.3 (or
darwin-3.3) toolset? This is because the MEX files are really shared libraries that must use
the same ABI as Matlab, which uses gcc-3.3. However the other binaries (non-MEX) in this
project must use gcc-4.0, because they need to be 64-bit. This means that when I run
bjam it needs to build two versions of the library -- one using gcc-3.3 andone using

I thought that my problems were because this is not the proper way to import features. I
still wish that generators.register-linker made <library> linkflags etc. become available. I
think that mex probably is sufficiently similar to a linker, so it should work.
