Subject: [Boost-build] Wrong library names
From: Jack Sanga (jacks_at_[hidden])

I'm trying to build boost 1_38 on Windows xp. I'm using VC 2008 (9.0).

When I execute bjam

bjam --toolset=msvc "-sPYTHON_VERSION=2.5"
"-sPYTHON_ROOT=c:\Python25" "-sBUILD=debug release
<define>_HAS_ITERATOR_DEBUGGING=0" stage

It builds my libraries, but they come out named x-vc71*.lib

I have VC 6 (don't ask), VC 8 and VC 9 on my machine.

Before I execute bjam I ran VCVARS32.bat from the VC 9.0 installation

Any ideas why the names default to 71?
