Subject: [Boost-build] How to declare Boost libraries that do auto-linking
From: Ian Emmons (iemmons_at_[hidden])

I am struggling to declare Boost libraries in my site-config.jam file
for Windows. I would like to use the auto-linking feature to avoid
specifying the library name, something like this:

searched-lib BoostProgramOptions
        : # no sources
        : <toolset>msvc
        : # no default build
        : <include>$(BoostDir)

This does not work, because the searched-lib target generates a
default value for the name feature ("BoostProgramOptions.lib") that
does not exist. What is the proper way to do this?

Thanks in advance,
