I can only speak for Boost.Threads. Shared library versions don't
exist because they require (non-trivial) code changes to make them
work on Win32. I'm not familiar with other platforms, so if they
don't require such code changes maybe we can add Jam rules specific
to individual platforms to get shared libraries today. I'll provide
Win32 shared libraries when I can work through the code changes
