## Setup requirements:
## Put the following line in your user-config.jam or site-config.jam
## use-project /boost : /path/to/boost/

project /piet
  : requirements <toolset>gcc <cxxflags>-std=c++0x
  : default-build debug
  : build-dir build

lib Magick++ ;

exe piet : src/main.cpp src/program.cpp src/exceptions.cpp
            /boost/program_options Magick++
         : <linkflags>-rdynamic <cxxflags>-rdynamic ;

Pretty simple. The net result is that -rdynamic doesn't seem to work, as
the backtrace doesn't include actual sym names usually, and this symptom
is apparently because -rdynamic doesn't get included.

I think it has to do with command-line order of options, and I would
appreciate if someone can help me with this!
