I am wondering what is the best practice for specifying pre-built boost
lib boost_thread : : <name>boost_thread ;
exe hello : hello.cpp boost_thread ;
is not enough, since the actual name of boost_thread is decorated with
debugging variant, threading, compiler ....
As I understand it would be possible to come up with a site-config.jam
file that could perform this kind of mapping. But this is tedious...
I guess a better way would be to write a boost.jam and put it into the
tools of boost-build.
In user-config.jam I would need simply say "using boost" and in my
exe hello : hello.cpp /boost//boost_thread ;
Is this possible, i.e. does anyone know of (or intend to write) such a
