Boost-Build :

I have a simple program:


#include "stdafx.h"

#include <boost/program_options.hpp>


int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])



      // Declare the supported options.

      boost::program_options::options_description desc("Options");


            ("help", "produce help message")

            ("compression", boost::program_options::value<int>(), "set
compression level")



      boost::program_options::variables_map vm;

c, argv, desc), vm);



      return 0;



Which compiles in VC++ 2008, but does not link:


fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file
'libboost_program_options-vc90-mt-1_35.lib' generate_dirac_delta


The boost has been built into stage using bjam, which generates a
boost_program_options-vc90-mt-1_35.lib (and .dll) and (almost) all the other
libraries. In fact the only files in the stage directory that start with
lib are libboost_test_exec_monitor-vc90-mt-1_35.lib and


Are there settings that I need to tweak to get the right library names?
