Subject: Re: [Boost-build] Import Library from Def File - MSVC

The syntax you mention makes sense but doesn't work as expected

I believe the issue is that <def-file> modifier is used in "link" rules

What I need to invoke is the "lib" program to generate the import

This may be a good starting point for me. If I come up with a
modification, I'll post it back.

After a quick glance at msvc.jam there is <def-file> feature
which seems to be exactly what you need:

lib myImportLib : : <def-file>Exports.def ;

It is not exactly documented, but it is stated in the extender
manual section that it exists.
