It seems not to matter either way: the issue was that the original code was
generating an invalid:

-use-pch "

argument when pch was off (note the single quote).

Nod, it's a hack, but the intel compiler doesn't over-write existing pch
files for some strange reason, so if you do a "bjam -a" (which I was doing a
lot of while testing!), then you end up with:



I assume that the compiler uses whichever is the most recent (I don't know
for sure though), but they sure do take up a lot of HD space!
