I was always wondering why the build system is putting intermediary files under
different compiler subdirectories when building documentation.
E.g. when invoking
bjam userman toolset=gcc format=pdf
(from BOOST_ROOT/tools\build\v2\doc )
The intermediaries go under
bjam userman toolset=msvc format=pdf
So the docs are built twice. But I doubt this is intentional in the most use
cases. I understand that this would allow the author having docs conditioned on
the used toolset. But is really anyone using this "feature"?
Instead I'd expect something like
bjam userman toolset=boostbook format=pdf
Please can anyone explain the rationale behind this behaviour?
