Hi Jurko, finally my mail is out of the black list. I feel better.

I musst humbly correct about my verry naive translation of C4251 and C4275
(msvc 8.0).
It's completly wrong. After I realized that, I have done further
experiments, and I humbly apologize with the author of programoptions
example. Actually his examples work.

Once again I have done the following

1. moved (BOOST_ROOT)\libs\program_options\example elsewhere and renamed it
2. Renamed Jamfile.v2 to Jamroot
3. changed the content of Jamroot to
#-- content of Jamroot --
# : requirements <library>../build//boost_program_options
# <hardcode-dll-paths>true
# ;
path-constant BOOST_INSTALLED_LIB : C:/Boost/lib ;
path-constant BOOST_INSTALLED_INC : C:/Boost/include/boost-1_35 ;
path-constant BOOST_ROOT : C:/guido/env/boost/boost_1_35_0 ;
use-project /boost : $(BOOST_ROOT) ;
 : requirements <include>$(BOOST_INSTALLED_INC)

exe first : first.cpp ;
exe options_description : options_description.cpp ;
exe multiple_sources : multiple_sources.cpp ;
exe custom_syntax : custom_syntax.cpp ;
exe real : real.cpp ;
exe regex : regex.cpp /boost/regex//boost_regex ;
#-- end of Jamroot contet--
4. comipled with different bjam lines e.g.

bjam first define=BOOST_ALL_DYN_LINK -a

bjam regex define=BOOST_ALL_DYN_LINK -a
they all work and I am using shared linking. I am especially impressed by
the regex.
Well why isn't this way of using boost and bjam reccommended explicitly.
I am very happy with that. The result of all this and similar variations is
in the attchment.

Of course it is necessary to adjust

 path-constant BOOST_INSTALLED_LIB : C:/Boost/lib ;
path-constant BOOST_INSTALLED_INC : C:/Boost/include/boost-1_35 ;
path-constant BOOST_ROOT : C:/guido/env/boost/boost_1_35_0 ;

according to your boost_root, boost_install places.

I would like someone with more understanding in boost-build system
to comment about "my troubles" and Jurko and my troubles solving.

Well I don't like shooting, even when target is troubles.

The problem with trouble shooting is that trouble shoots you back.

P.S.I had to remove the bin folder with exe because of gmail.
