We could, but it is something that is *supposed* to apply to all
toolsets. That is... right now only the intel-win32-7.1-vc6-* toolsets
show the problem because they are the only ones that have a version
number. If there was some other auto-link supporting toolset with a
version it would also break.

It's really not a toolset related choice but a library choice. If one
makes use of a library that supports auto-link by default. One has to
turn auto-link off if you refer to it directly (<lib>whatever, or
