We have two issues:

that claim the the names of library files on mingw are wrong.
Unfortunately, the picture is not exactly clear, and it's not
even clear what the right naming would be.

I'd appreciate if somebody who actually uses mingw could clarify
these points:

1. Currently, we use the same naming on mingw as on windows --
foo.dll and foo.lib for shared libs and import libs, and libfoo.lib
for static library. Is this OK?

2. Are the search rules listed in tools/build/v2/tools/gcc.jam
around line 657 matching the reality?

3. Is naming in (1) compatible with using -Bstatic to request
static libs?
