MSVCRT and MSVCPRT are the DLL runtimes, not the single-threaded ones; you're thinking of LIBC and LIBCP.

I have STLport versions, but:

C:\Boost\lib>dumpbin /directives libboost_thread-vc71-mt-sp-1_33_1.lib | findstr DEFAULTLIB | sort | uniq

C:\Boost\lib>dumpbin /directives libboost_thread-vc71-mt-p-1_33_1.lib | findstr DEFAULTLIB | sort | uniq

Looks like someone has managed to build the static version against DLL runtimes, or just done some creative renaming...
