Boost-Build :

I posted this before and didn't get a response, so I thought I would try again.

I am using the gcc toolset to try and build an executable with the .C
extension. I get the error at the end of this email.
I tried just a simple executable in my Jamfile with boost-build, such as:

exe test : test.C ;

The rule compile.c++ in gcc mentions the .C extensions, so I am
wondering what I am doing wrong. I can't get this to work with
libraries full of .C files, either.
