[pkg-boost-devel] Bug#619766: libboost1.46-dev: hardcode-dll-paths feature is missing

Package: libboost1.46-dev
Version: 1.46.1-3
Severity: important


Since boost-build is provided by libboost1.46-dev, the hardcode-dll-paths
feature is missing. This means that executables built using Boost.Build do not
include anymore the absolute paths to the dll libraries. This feature is really
useful for developpers.

Thanks to Steve, I know that gcc.jam and gcc.py have to be modified and this
bug can be finally fixed by not applying the remove-rpath patch.
