Al tough I was using this , I just discovered that it only worked by

What is missing, so this really will work, at least on windows with
autolink, is something of a macro BOOST_LAYOUT which complements the
Boost.Build --layout= command line option.

I would consider this even as a bug since on windows when building with
--layout=system the autolink feature is not working at all.
BOOST_AUTO_LINK_NOMANGLE is not of help here, since the --layout=system
still applies lib prefix and threading and runtime suffixes.

In an ideal world, when doing bjam --layout=system install, the header
file boost/config/autolink.hpp would be patched with the correct setting
of the proposed BOOST_LAYOUT macro.

But then --layout=system might not be intended for win32. It should be
disabled then for windows?

What do you think?
