find-library for boost decorated names

Reported by: Roland Schwarz Owned by: Vladimir Prus
Milestone: Component: build
Version: None Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


Refering to versioned boost libraries from Jamfiles
requires toolset specific library specification.

I suggest a mechanism, which should allow to specify a
canonical form of a boost library in the requirements
section of e.g. an exe taget.

The build system should take care to expand the
canonical name to the decorated one that is compatible
with the current build settings.

The mechanism should allow to specify the lib version
to use, and whether to link with a dynamic or static
version of the respective library.
