I'm attaching a zip file that contains 3 files:


I genuinely tried to provide my question as simple as possible. In that process, I committed a typo, which I certainly understand leads to confusion. Sorry.

As I'm anyway sending all my bjam files, could you please also offer advice - in getting rid of code ugliness or make it more efficient?

Thanks a lot,
Anant Rao

Please provide a complete project reproducing the problem -- as zip archive. As it stands, you
have shown definition of 'libParser' metatarget, and is asking why 'libParserProcessor' is
built statically, but the definition of 'libParserProcessor' is nowhere to be seen.
