 We need more input.

 The following code snippet, is not able to reproduce the described
 behavior, although not the first hint of a library being present. Try this
 (in an empty dir):

 libtool --mode=link g++ -no-undefined -o -L. -lfoobar

 On the other hand I verified, that the gnu linker ld is able to accept
 xxx.dll.a or libxxx.dll.a as import libraries.

 I am pretty sure libtool also will find xxx.lib named import libraries.

 I guess the reported bug is not related to boost naming scheme at all, but
 this is just a guess. It would be ideal if the described behavior would be
 presented in a stripped down version, since we have no access to the
 posters prerequisites (i.e pion libs)
