Hi all,

I'm sure this must have been covered before, but I am completely
unable to find what I'm after, so apologies if that is the case.

I seem to have a feeling that BBv2 as shipped with 1.33.1 is not
completely ready for compiling with msvc 8 on Windows with
autolinking, but I'm not sure where I go that from.

What I would like to do is build the following configurations with VC8:
 * debug with shared libraries
 * release shared and static libraries with _SECURE_SCL=0 defined.

Can that be done in a single call of bjam? I don't mind if we get
debug static at the same time.

And for completeness and the sake of comparison (and for when we move
to 1.34) what is the equivalent with BBv2? I've noticed that there is
some conditional stuff:
But couldn't work out how to do it on the command line, do I need to
create some jam config files?

Thanks for your time,
