I've got a problem with the MIDL HOWTO Q&A question number 4:

 "Q4: I'm converting a Visual Studio project and I get the linker error
'unresolved external symbol _LIBID_exampleLib'.
  A4: Include example-typelib_i.c to one of the source files"

I tried putting mylibrary_i.c into the list of source files, but bjam
can't find the file (which is generated by the MIDL compiler). I can put
bin/msvc/debug/mylibrary_i.c into the list of source files, which works
(well, it doesn't work with subprojects), but obviously that can't be
the correct solution. I also tried using <implicit-dependency>, but that
didn't work either. How can I tell bjam to look into the build directory
when getting that source file?

Best regards,

Richard Peters
