Okay, so the problem we're facing is that building master results in:
error: Tried to build the target twice, with property sets having
error: these incompatible properties:
error: - none
error: - <address-model>32 <architecture>x86
What happens is this:
- Context library is built
- It detects default address model and architecture of the current toolchain, and adds those
- Since there's a global dependency on 'headers' target, this pretty much immediately rebuilds
everything with new address-model and architecture properties.
- We get property set clash
One way to solve this is to restructure Boost.Context setup so that added properties do not
escape. It's doable, but probably will be fragile.
Another way is to take libs/context/config, move it to libs/config, and make sure these properties
are applied globally. That seems preferable. John, any objections?
