(everything is rebuilt by calling "%BUILDROOTPATH%Msvc90StlPort.bat" before
each cl command).
However, if I use the following user-config.jam ...
using msvc : 9.0~stlport5.2 : :
with the same command line I get a ton of errors saying that cl is not
recognized, which isn't surprising as the log no longer shows calls to
I'm wondering why I have to specify a compiler executable? My understanding
of <setup> is that it should set *everything* (including PATH) so that all
tools can be found, no?
