I've got a handful of targets that I am trying to build, but some of
them I want to be built only for specified toolsets. This was covered
at least once back in January:
Unfortunately, the alias approximation given to simulate if
(!<toolset>foo) no longer works with bbv2 1.33.1. I get the following
error: failed to build ./begin with properties ...
<toolset>gcc ... because no best-matching alternative could be found.
In my Jamfile I have (among other things):
alias begin : : <toolset>gcc ;
alias begin : /adobe/test/begin/ ;
Is the old method of approximation supposed to work still? If not, is
there a new means by which we can approximate "if (!<toolset>foo)"?
