But... :-)
..Using it to build boost itself, I got 'invalid rpath options' messages
while building the shared versions of the libraries.
I got a quick fix by replacing

(see pathscale.jam.diff attached)

I suspect that -Wl,-rpath itself is not the best way to proceed
(although we know that pathscale will use gnu linker anyway) but
I don't know much about boost build so... (pathscale.jam.alt.diff is
attached just in case)
