Boost-Build :

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:

exe testSDL:

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??
