One thing I mentioned [1] about 1.62 and several older versions, a few
days ago, is also present in this RC:

In the "toolset=msvc-14.0 link=shared runtime-link=shared" build,
several static libraries are built for no discernible reason. As far as
I can tell by watching file system operations (using Sysinternals
procmon), these libraries are not accessed again after creation.

There is nothing documented about this behavior, and I suspect a bug in
the build process.

The unexpected files are:


These two are probably expected, because there are no DLLs built for
them at all:


Sorry for harping on this, but I still don't understand what's happening
