Boost-Build :

I've had a couple of complaints now from people using Boost.Regex with
STLport to the effect that they can't link against the regex lib's produced
by bjam because these always reference the STLport dll's and not the static
libraries. Looking in stlport.jam I see:

        if [ $(rproperties).get <runtime-debugging> ] = "on"
            usage-requirements +=
                <define>_STLP_USE_DYNAMIC_LIB=1 ;

So it looks like whenever a debug build is built the STLport dll version is
linked against regardless of the users intent? What was the rationale here?

Thanks, John.
