Hi Mirko.

   I'm not really sure I understand your question, but you can make
Boost Build built its targets without using tool options to enable
multi-threading support by specifying the threading=single requierement.
You can do that either on the command line, or directly in your target

   See the Boost Build docs for details or ask here if anything else is

   You can make Boost Build display all the exact command-lines executed
by using the -d2 command-line option. Then you can try running the
problematic command line directy and seeing exactly where the problem is.

   Possibly some macro is not getting defined correctly. In that case
try running just the C++ preprocessor and see where exactly the error
occurs in there.

   Hope this helps.
