I use many different make system. I even wrote 1 personally. My ususal
expectation is that dependant library are automatically copied into dsired
location. This is especially true if you tell the compiler not to use
LD_LIBRARY_PATh and hardcode specific search path into executable.

This is not what I need. Here is the rule I am using to execute the tests:
rule test-btl-lib ( test-rule : test-name : lib-name ? : pattern_file * :
source_files * )
source_files ?= $(test-name).cpp ;
return [ $(test-rule) $(source_files) ../build//$(lib-name)
<define>BOOST_TEST_NO_AUTO_LINK=1 # requirements
Here how I use it:
[ test-btl-lib run : fixed_mapping_test :
[ test-btl-lib run : algorithms_test :
What should I put inside it so all updated dependant shared libraries (I
don't need .libs ) are automatically gets copied?
