Note that:
- it's general not good idea to add extra priority to your issue like this.
- there's no apparent bug in Boost.Build, so this mail better belongs
to boost-users_at_[hidden]

I'm surprised that this works -- neither of those -s option has any effect
for Boost.Build

Here's the code:

   inline std::string error_category::message( int ) const
      static std::string s("error: should never be called");
      return s;

The error suggest a bug in compiler. Making it non-inline and moving into
some .cpp file might help. If not, ask your compiler vendor.
