How do you achieve the release mode builds? Overwriting the flags on the
command line? I'm asking, because at least the Wave-test Jamfile explicitely
specifies to build the debug modules.
But this gives me a clue. I'll try to compile it here with my gcc in release
mode (optimisation on) but with debug symbols, let's see what happens ;-)

Yep. I'm currently trying to figure out the Wave problems on different

Yeah, the cw-9_3-darwin related missing symbols are from the ctype<> family.

Thanks a lot!
