   I do not recall there being a built-in switch to add such
information. But it boils down to preparing a resource file with the
desired version information and having Boost Build recognize that
resource file as a source for your dlls.

   Try playing around with it to get it working for your own single dll,
then try and see what would be needed to get it added to a single Boost
library dll (with as few changes as possible to the library's build
system itself), and then if there is a way to somehow do this
automatically for all the libraries.

   Hope this helps.
