Boost-Build :

Was there ever a known bug with this?
My timestamp.txt reads "Mon Nov 6 17:41:46 MSK 2006"

I've added in the top level project-root.jam

project : requirements <hardcode-dll-paths>false ;

To make the dev one behave like the install one, but this had no effect.

I've tried the inverse, in the lower-level Jamfile, i.e. made my install

install executable : hello
        : <install-dependencies>on <install-type>EXE <location>./bin

And again this had no effect...(obviously I tried these one at a time ;-)).
Is there something wrong in my syntax somewhere?
Has anyone actualy done this in a unix/linux environment with success?

Thank you in advance,

The bins in 'output' are built with <hardcode-dll-paths>true, since that's
good for development.

The install rule uses <hardcode-dll-paths>false, since that's better for
deployment. So, either add <hardcode-dll-paths>true to requirements
of your install target, or use <hardcode-dll-paths> as top-level
project requirement.
