   Nope, did not mean this.

   When you build something using the msvc toolset all the parameters
passed to compilers/linkers get packaged into response files. When you
look at the shell commands bjam executes you just see the
compiler/linker call with the name of the response file passed as a
parameter. To see exactly which compiler/linker parameters were used you
need to open that response file but if a compiler/linker call fails then
its corresponding response file gets deleted together with any other
partially built targets. :-(
