Subject: [Boost-build] gcc visibility support
From: Robert Ramey (ramey_at_[hidden])

I'm interested in adding support for -fvisibility=hidden to the gcc library
I can include the following in the Jamfile.v2 of the build directory.
which bjam seems to accept without complaint. Indeed the gcc command line
So, so good.
But now I have some problems.
a) visibility is supported in version 4+ compilers. What syntax does one
use to specify that that the above should only apply to these compilers.
b) If one is building a static library, presuably the above shouldn't be
included (though it probably does no harm). How does this modify the above
c) The cygwin system I use to test has gcc-4.3.4 installed. BUT, the usage
of -fvisibility=hidden evokes a compile time warning for file. The warning
says that visibility is not supported on this build - which presumably is
cygwin. So the above would also have to be conditioned upon the fact that
cygwin is not being used.
any help appreciated.
