Subject: [Boost-build] Boost build failed if custom toolset path is not available
From: marfro (markus.froschauer_at_[hidden])

I am successfully compiling the boost library (1_46_0) for msvc and for gcc.

For gcc I use a custom toolset path. Therefore I created an entry in the
user-config.jam file. If that path is not available the whole boost build
files even when I build it only for msvc.

After enabling the debug information I see that the build process
initializes and checks all using statements of the user-config.jam file. Why
is that necessary, since I already named the toolset on the bjam call?

Does anybody know if I can avoid this behaviour so the build still be
successfull even though the path is missing?

Best regards,
