Just by accident I found out that it is possible to say e.g. from
bjam --toolset=gcc-17.04 --with-thread stage
and will get libraries with e.g.:
Clearly 1704 is not an existing compiler version, but the point is, it
gets compiled! So one cannot be sure, that the library indeed has been
compiled with a certain compiler.
If I had said:
bjam --toolset=gcc-3.3.5 --with-thread stage
how can I be sure it really has been compiled with this version and not
say the default, which is 4.1 in my case?
I would have expected that the build simply refuses to compile if the
correct version isn't available.
What I am missing?
