I've got nearly the same question, but for "prebuilt" boost libraries.
I guess it does not exist, but wouldn't it be usefull to get them so
that one be able to write the following:
use-project /boost : /path/to/libraries/boost ;
... and to get approximately (for G++)
g++ main.cpp -lboost_filesystem -lboost_system
-I/path/to/boost/includes -L/path/to/boost/libs -o proj
The point is to be able to depend on boost libraries without
recompiling them, consequently have prebuilt definitions for all
libraries into the boost jamroot. What do you think ?
