Subject: [Boost-build] Passing <cxxflags>-fPIC with use-project /boost
From: Martin Dyring-Andersen (mda_at_[hidden])

I have a Jamroot that looks like this:
project : requirements
: build-dir stage
: default-build release
use-project /boost : dependencies/boost_1_39_0 ;
use-project /test : test ;
and a Jamfile located in test subdirectory that looks like this:
lib test : [ glob-tree *.cpp ]
Now, to get the static linking to /boost//thread and date_time working I need to pass -fPIC when building with GCC on 64 bit platforms.
I can see that my own targets in lib sfcg gets compiled with -fPIC, but for some reason the /boost//thread and date_time libraries does not seem to "notice" it.
Everything will work perfectly if I pass cxxflags=-fPIC as a parameter to bjam on the command line. But I would prefer to cram as many details as possible into the Jamfiles, so I don't have to remember them later on ;-).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
