Boost-Build :

I've got a problem with <library-file> on MSVC compilers.

In my Jamfile.v2 I have:

lib boost_thread_pthread
     : ## sources ##
      : ## requirements ##
         <include>"C:/Program Files/ptw32/Pre-built.2/include"

However the build fails with:
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file

I have been looking into the respective rsp file which reads:

<plibs/thread/src>C:\Program Files\ptw32\Pre-built.2\lib\pthreadVC2.lib

The last line obviously beeing wrong.

I am hoping that someone more knowledgeable with v2 can tell
me what possibly might be wrong. I am aware that the above might not be
easily reproducable without checking out the thread_rewrite branch.

If needed to further diagnose the problem I will try to set up a
separate project file.

Thank you for help,
