What I build is usually autolink/mt/debug+release on Windows, and this
has been sufficient for all projects in the last years. There might be
people who need the DLL libraries, but by default (IMO) the static
autolink libraries are good enough. If someone needs the DLLs, he can
easily build them, and for most programs using the static libraries is
much more convenient.
