If the toolset I use on Windows to run the Boost Build tests is
mingw-w64/gcc-n.n a number of tests fail because the tests assume a file
extension for object files of .obj whereas the file extension for gcc
object files is .o . Is this an issue for Boost Build testing which is
known about ?
Obviously I can run the tests using msvc-n.n etc. But should it not be
documented in the test_system.html that any compiler not producing .obj
files will fail a number of tests ? Or perhaps the tests themselves can
be updated to figure out the extension to be expected for object files
based on the toolset passed to it for running the tests.
