That's bad. Rationale see below.

Oh, misunderstanding here. What I meant was:
How do I disable pch completly.
Or: How to get the old, much simpler commandlines back again when not
using pchs ?
When pchs are disabled, I'd like the compiler not to use _any_ , even
This means, I don't want any mention of pch on the commandline when they
I think this is a key requirement and one of the results of the past
dicscusions about pch files.
Unfortunately, this seems to be the hardest part of the issue as you
must somehow switch between pch and non-pch in <toolset>.jam...

Well, I got gcc to create the pch file. But I doubt that gcc will take
an empty file and create an empty pch file.
I'll hack a few tests for this ....
