You can call "b2 --help" (or "bjam --help") in the Boost-source
directory and will get the information you are looking for:

   Build the specified pre-defined set of variations of
   the libraries. Note, that which variants get built
   depends on what each library supports.
      -- minimal -- (default) Builds a minimal set of
      variants. On Windows, these are static
      multithreaded libraries in debug and release
      modes, using shared runtime. On Linux, these are
      static and shared multithreaded libraries in
      release mode.
      -- complete -- Build all possible variations.
