Boost-Build :

I'm using the iostreams library together with Qt on Windows.
Windows does not support zlib, but Qt does.
The Qt binaries include zlib.

When I build the iostreams library I have to specify the name of the
binary that contains zlib.
But that name is not known when I build the iostreams library.
I have several Qt binaries:
Qt3 and Qt4, static and dynamic, debug and release.
So it is difficult to know in advance the name of the Qt binary that
contains zlib.

Why do I have to tell Boost build the name of the binary that contains
As long as I make sure that zlib is present in some binary at link time,
Boost should not have to know where it is.
