You're welcome.

BTW for the general audience the problem here was mixing targets and filenames. 
 I changed 
just this:

+       libmpglib.a      

You should really rarely have to specify any paths like that in Jam.  (unless 
perhaps you are
working in Jamrules)  Jam will work out which libmpglib.a you are talking about 
and if it gets
it wrong then there's grist to make it get it right.  Once Jam has figured out 
which libmpglib.a
you are talking about, it knows where it built it or plans to build it, and it 
can compute the
paths and dependencies accordingly.
