Subject: [Boost-build] New naming convention for the libraries in 1.40.0 release

Hi All,

>From the Bosst relase notes for 1.40.0:

Build System
The default naming of libraries in Unix-like environment now matches system conventions, and does not include various decorations.

The problem I am facing is that FindBoost.cmake (from the latest CMAKE release 2.8) still adds '-mt' suffix to the pattern to search for Boost libraries and fails to find 1.40.0 libraries in certain cases.

My question is there a way to force Boost.Build to generate libraries with the old naming convention or is there any other way to get around the problem (until FindBosst.cmake will catch up).
