This makes sense. However, doesn't it also mean that the targets (or
libraries autolinked) should be named differently when only "using
msvc ; " is used in the user-config.jam? Since "using msvc ; " will
only create libboost_*-vc-* instead of libboost_*-vc80-* libraries,
then shouldn't the linker determine which one should be used according
to the user-config.jam option?

I'm not sure how that works currently, or whether or not that's
actually a bug or a feature request.

Thanks for the insight. Now I have to rebuild and re-install boost again. :D
