 You mean, that warning is now emitted? Is it emitted for each target? Well,
it seems a bit unlogical to first request
build properties that can't be built, and then emit warnings. Imagine a user
that just wants to build Boost, and
gets some warnings. Should he be worried by those warnings? In specific case
of Boost, he should not, so we'd need to

      - suppress the warnings just for Boost
      - stop requesting combination that can't be built
