<target-type> encodes the type of target being built. It's unrelated to
<runtime-link>, because in general you can link any kind of target to
either static or dynamic runtime libraries.

I always just do bjam -n -a, copy the build command, change -c to -E, and
remove the -o.... stuff. Yeah, the build system should make this more
