Subject: Re: [Boost-build] Disable Python / Boost.Regex Unicode warnings when running bjam

Boost 1.41 and the bjam that ships with it.

I depend on boost by having

use-project /boost : d:/dev/libs/boost ;

in user-config.jam (as a side note, this prevents me from building boost
directly in the boost folder, go figure)

My project jamroot thus does nothing except depend on /boost//thread
etc. The reason I do this instead of using the boost module in bjam is
because I use several compilers and depending on the source tree makes
-a recompile for the compiler I am currently using if I have changed
compiler options. Also lets me not have to compile all of boost
explicitly for each compiler nor manage library paths for each one.

Not at work atm so can't send you --debug-configuration right now but if
you think it's needed I can send it tomorrow.
