I've the requirement to overwrite which assembler tool is used on a
In the case of mingw GAS is used on Windows. Unfortunately GAS does not
come with special macros for generating the exception handler
(especially on WIn64) like MASM.
It would make life easier if I could specify that boost.build should use
MASM in order to compile a specific assembler file. The functions are
declared as 'extern C' and implement cdecl call-convetion so that it is
save to link the object file of the assembler together with the object
files generated by mingw.
Would it be possible that boost.build will support it?
