Some people have tried, with little success. Building shared libraries
under OS X was an twisty maze of little passages, last time I looked. I'd
love to know what command-lines I need to spit out to accomplish this, so
that I could make Boost.Build do the job.

Here's a thought: I think somebody out there was building BPL with
distutils. I wonder if the distutils approach would "just work" on OS X?

Some kind of GCC 3.1 alpha variant, I think.

I don't know these things.
