Maybe this was the reason why when I attempted to define path-constant settings in the root jam file or the user jam file for iostreams that it didn’t work and I was forced to keep defining the constants on the jam command line instead.

Is the same problem also applicable when the ICU library is required by a Boost library?

Kind regards,

The Jamfile.v2 in the iostreams library of Boost 1_48 has the line (around 29):

$(v) = [ modules.peek : $(v) ] ;

Used to propogate path-constant settings to the local jam environment. I think it should be:

$($(v)) = [ modules.peek : $(v) ] ;


At least when I run with this the build of iostreams works correctly to compile bzip2 and zlib objects and fails otherwise.


Has anyone else observed this?
