Hi Build experts,

I have a project with a V2 Jamfile and a dependency to Boost.Filesystem.
These are my link settings:

   <threading>multi <link>static <runtime-link>static

When I build with GCC (mingw) all is fine. Now when building with MSVC8


is built, but the linker tries to link my executable against:

   ... cannot open file 'libboost_filesystem-vc80-mt-sgd-1_34.lib'

So I added


to my link settings. The same variant of Boost.Filesystem is built and I get a
slightly different error message:

   ... cannot open file 'libboost_filesystem-vc80-mt-s-1_34.lib'

All this seems a bit strange to me, especially since IIRC the very same Jamfile
used to work with MSVC8 before (although I'm not entirely sure).

I'm using the current CVS version (updated today) and already rebuilt my bjam

Thank you very much for your help,
