I have some trouble to tell BBv2 the right link order to link against
external libraries. What I want to do is to compile an SDL program using
MinGW and BoostBuild.
I just started with a simple Jamfile looking like this:
where mingw32, SDL, and SDLmain are defined as toolset with the right
include and lib path.
My trouble is that BB always output the following linking directive
whatever I tried:
gcc -o testSDL testSDL.o -lSDL -lSDLmain -lmingw32
Which fails with an unresolved external. What I need is to get this:
gcc -o testSDL testSDL.o -lmingw32 -lSDL -lSDLmain
Which succed if I launch directly from the command line.
So, my question is: How to tell BB to link against the libraries in the
order I need??
