Boost-Build :

The Darwin linker on Mac OS 10.4.x mangles executables when the "-s"
option is used to strip out debugging symbols. The result is an
executable that always fails like this:

# Getting test case results out of "/Volumes/scratch/dgregor/
dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: lazy pointer not found
dyld: lazy pointer not found

The fix is quite trivial: use the separate "strip" program instead of
tacking the "-s" option onto the linker command line. The following
simple patch makes this change. With it, I'm able to build a proper
process_jam_log and, with any luck, get regression tests up and
running for Mac OS X with BBv2.

As far as I know, this problem only shows up with Apple GCC 4.0.x on
