Hi Volodya,

Thanks for the quick response! That solution worked great!! However, is
there some way to specify these options on the command line or is the
ideal solution to put this in a custom user-config.jam file and specify
that file on the command line? I'm setting up a build system that
compiles my project in multiple compilers and configurations (with gcc 2,
3, and 4), so having a method to automatically switch between them is

Thanks again!
