Thanks for the explanation. I didn't understand the semantics of override before your explanation. I get the gist of what you are saying and it explains the ambiguity errors I was getting in my toolset before I added these statements. The override for searched-lib-generator makes sense. What about prebuilt? What's the motivation for:
generators.override builtin.lib-generator : xyz.prebuilt ;
Assuming $(xyz) = gcc , is gcc saying that it doesn't want the unix rule for prebuilt but rather builtin.lib-generator.prebuilt ?
Thanks for your help. I'm sure there will be another fledgling toolset developer who will benefit.
