Boost-Build :

I have another cross compiler problem.

We are running a cross compiler toolchain under Cygwin/Windows. This
toolchain uses a cuistomized gcc compiler to generate code for a linux

When trying to build boost using this cross compiler, bjam still detects
that it is running on cygwin and windows, and tries to build DLLs
instead of linux shared libraries. Is there any chance to configure bjam
to run under windows or cygwin but generate code for a different target,
either by special command line options or even by compiling a custom
version of bjam?

I have looked into jam some time ago but had to drop it because it was
unable to differentiate between host and target configuration (like
running under a windows host but generate code for Linux). Seem I am
faling into the same trap again...

Any help is appreciated!
