Boost-Build :

I'm reasonably new to boost build and I suspect this question has been
asked & answered before but I haven't found one.

I've got a simple Jamfile

lib Fmwk : [ glob *.C ] ;

that attempts build a library from c++ source files with upper case C
suffixes. When I build with bjam, I get this error message. I get the
same error message if I specify the file explicitly.

[kbelco_at_sahp6583 votd]$ bjam
/home/kbelco/boost_1_33_1/tools/build/v2/build/generators.jam:922: in
ensure-type from module generators
error: target { Fmwk_Algorithm.C. } has no type
/home/kbelco/boost_1_33_1/tools/build/v2/build/generators.jam:1119: in
generators.construct from module generators

It appears that the Jambase file in jam_src is configured to recognize
*.C c++ files but it clearly doesn't work correctly on either Darwin or
Linux Redhat Enterprise 4 with boost 1.33.1.

Any ideas how to get this working?
