Subject: [Boost-build] How to add file version info to boost binaries
From: grayaii (george.gray_at_[hidden])

We are building boost with the following command line:
bjam toolset=msvc-10.0 variant=release threading=multi link=static
runtime-link=static define=_BIND_TO_CURRENT_VCLIBS_VERSION
-sZLIB_INCLUDE=%proj_root%\zlib -sZLIB_SOURCE=%proj_root%\zlib

It works well, but the binaries that are produced have no version
information associated with them.
For instance, on Windows, when I right-click on
boost_iostreams-vc100-mt-1_45.dll and select "properties", there is no
version tab.

How can I put version information into these binaries during the build?
