bjam special cases --pythonXXX options?

Reported by: smr@… Owned by: René Rivera
Milestone: Boost 1.42.0 Component: bjam
Version: Boost 1.41.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


The bjam shipped with Boost 1.41 generally ignores unrecognized options; e.g. "./; ./bjam --blabla" will build everything just fine. However, if I pass "--pythonbla", I get a very mysterious failure:

steve@riemann{boost}./bjam --pythonbla
Boost.Build V2 Python port (experimental)
/home/steve/Packages/boost/upstream/testing/trunk/boost/tools/build/v2/kernel/bootstrap.jam:223: in boost-build
rule PYTHON_IMPORT_RULE unknown in module
/home/steve/Packages/boost/upstream/testing/trunk/boost/boost-build.jam:17: in module scope

Why is this? This was not the behaviour in 1.40.

This breaks the "--pythonid" patch we use in Debian; c.f.

(In [58668]) Only use Python port of Boost.Build when exactly '--python' is passed. Fixes #3814.
