Subject: [Boost-users] --layout=system in user-config.jam?

Hi all,

In a recent post (a few weeks ago), someone asked if it is possible to
remove the compiler name/version from the library name.

i.e., -->

Someone replied that adding "--layout=system" to bjam would do the trick
and indeed, that worked. When compiling Boost, I was wondering if it is
possible to add this parameter to the user-config.jam file, rather than
editting the Makefile directly? If so, what would be the syntax to do
this? Somewhere, I read that user-config.jam "define[s] available
toolsets" -- I guess this parameter is not a toolset, so it is not possible?

The reason I am asking is rather silly -- but just that editting the
Makefile is slightly more error-prone than sending a user-config.jam to
someone (or backing it up myself for later use) since the Makefile could
change based on what configure outputs.

Thank you!
