Yes. But the versioned one still creates unversioned "links" to the
versioned libraries.

The differences between versioned and system layouts are more apparent
when compiling on Unix like systems. In those the internal name of the
libraries changes and instead of copies symlinks are created. If Windows
supported DLL internal names and symlinks (easily) it would use that
instead of making copies.

There are, just not documented. The toolsets others created for vc-8_0
are: vc-8_0-amd64, vc-8_0, and vc-8_0-x86_amd64. Not sure what the
differences are between the two amd64 versions though :-\
