Subject: [Boost-build] [RFC] Key file types on target-os
From: Vladimir Prus (ghost_at_[hidden])

Presently, when building on linux shared libraries have extension of .so,
even if you use mingw compiler and specify target-os=windows. The same
problem is present for other types. This patch makes it use target-os
instead. I've verified that running



        bjam target-os=windows

in the example/libraries project does the right thing with extensions.
Does anybody see any reason why this patch may break things?
