Hi all,

I have problems to build the Wave tool with VC7.1 and bjam --v2. It is
known, that while building Wave with this compiler one must specify the /GR-
option (rtti-off) or specify no /GR option at all (which is equivalent to

For this reason the Wave Jamfiles specify:

    <toolset>msvc-7.1:<rtti>off # workaround for compiler bug

which seemed to work the last time I checked (frankly this was a while ago).
Now this doesn't give the expected result anymore, the generated commandline
contains the /GR option making the build fail.

If I write:

    <toolset>msvc:<rtti>off # workaround for compiler bug

everything is ok, but I guess this switches off rtti for all msvc tools,

Any suggestions?
Regards Hartmut
