Boost-Build :

Sorry for double posting this issue, but the original place:

"Re: [Boost-build] Simple bjam question: linking in boost libraries?"

possibly gets overlooked by the one who could answer this.

When used on an exe target the <runtime-link>static property means on
windows: Link with the static C-runtime lib.

On Linux the same means to change the behavior of the linker switch
"-l" to cause it to link in the static versions of _all_ the specified
libraries (including C-runtime).

The problem now is with the "s" tag of the boost libraries:
On windows this means I need to link with
e.g. libboost_thread-vc71-mt-s.lib while on Linux
libboost_thread-gcc-mt.a (without the "s")

It might well be that I am missing something fundamentally.
Can anyone shed some light on this please?
