Subject: [Boost-build] how can we set the compiler options when using bjam for application building
From: Ganesh Borse (bganesh05_at_[hidden])

I am trying to use bjam for application build on Windows with VS9.0.

I found that if I follow the step given at "", the configures the MSVC compiler to some default compiler options.

E.g., it sets multi-threaded DLL linking (/MD, /MDd) and so on.

But, if I want to override these default compiler options, say I want to
use single-threaded static linking (/MT and /MTd instead of /MD, /MDd), how
can I change these options?

I gave <link>static in jamroot file and also tried to give "link=static" at
bootstrap.bat, but still I can see that "cl.exe" is using "/MD".

How can we change the flags passed to MSVC compiler, linker for different
variants like debug, release, and different architectures?

Thanks and Regards,
