I think he's suggesting to just add the .cpp files as sources from
this library that you need to your BBv2 exe target just as you do
your main.cpp file. e.g.
exe my_exec : main.cpp ../library/a.cpp ../library/b.cpp ;
This is a very simple way to do it. If you need everything in that
library then you might just use [ glob ], otherwise create a
variable to hold these files. Better yet, just make a jamfile for
building a library binary. I suggest you look at the following:
