The clang toolset seems to be incomplete (or maybe just broken) as it does not
honour the <ranlib> and <archiver> options used by gcc.jam to explicitly
specify the tools. gcc.jam also has some logic to query the full paths from
gcc which clang(-linux).jam does not use either. Unfortunately, my Boost.Build
knowledge ends here.
I was able to get things going by putting "C:/mingw32-dw2/bin/" into PATH and

work. Not nice, especially if you want several toolsets, but the only solution
for now, I fear.

I can use clang without the extra include flags. And <include> feature is
For the record, the full invocation should be:
using clang : 3.1
: # options
as soon as <ranlib> and <archiver> work. But those should be autodetected as
