Thanks for providing me, offlist, with the necessary logs. This happens
to be preexisting problem -- if you look at iostream testresults from
you, you will find none. The reason is that iostream's Jamfile had this:

 29195 turkanis <toolset>msvc,<stdlib>stlport:<link-runtime>static

This requirement was there since the beginning. I've removed it -- we'll
see how the test result will look.

There's a chance that some other libraries does the same, if so, I'll need
debug output again.
