I don't know if this is reasonable but it's different from what other
boost libraries do (which _always_ default to linking the corresponding
static boost lib).
If there is a rational behind that, it should be documented!

yes, if the behaviour remains unchanged, this should be fixed.

Anyway, IMO it's a clear bug in the jamfile that the boost.thread
libraries for the static rt configuration are not built!
