Boost-Build :

This is me.

In the past, I've made the building/testing of the serialization library
conditional on the installation of the spirit 1.6x library. This
requires spirt 1.6 + an environmental variable setting indicating
the directory where it is to be found.

In V2 - I tried to update my Jamfile to handle this but have
been unsuccessful. I did ask for help on this a couple of
times on the build list - but the response I got suggested
what I did should work - so here we are.

I would love to get this fixed so I could test this
compiler on my own system.

Another note - I now get warnings that some
headers I use from the spirit library are now
"deprecated". If I were to "upgrade" the calls
to spirit to elminate these warnings, then the
xml serialization would not not work with
spirit 1.6x so that leaves me in a quandry.

On the other hand, the latest enhancments
to binary archives broke borland serialization
in a different way - so maybe we might as
we'll just forget about borland compatibility.
