Boost-Build :

It seems that Boost 1.34 released with the problem I mentioned some time ago on
this list. It is impossible to build Boost 1.34 in debug with Intel Compiler. It
creates wrong names for libraries - without "debug runtime" suffix letter so
auto-link fails.

I've posted a patch sometime ago for this but it hasn't be applied.

Another complaint is that I'm stuck with building Windows x64 version of Boost
with Intel Compiler. It seems it's not supported at all...

P.S. I have to admit (once again, and at the risk of being cursed) that
Boost.Build is the most hard to use and to get right part of Boost. Many things
require digging through the sources and are very non-obvious and non-intuitive.
