Subject: [Boost-build] integration with lib boost

I have a project which uses the boost library. This is also how I came
to Boost.Build, by the way.

This project must run on different plattforms. My problem is, that the
boost libraries have different names on different plattforms, in my case
libboost_date_time-gcc43-mt-1_38.a vs.
(note the different GCC version number).

How am I supposed to specify the Jamfiles? Currently I am working around
by symlinking 'libboost_date_time.a -> libboost_date_time-gcc43-mt-1_38.a'
and stating 'lib boost_date_time ; ' in the Jamfile.

But I don't think this is the way to go, is it?
