Boost.Build V1 uses separate rules for static and dynamic libraries, and
I don't particularly like that.
For example, Linix apps with autoconf have "--enable-shared" configure
options, which just makes all the libraries static -- quite simple. Why
have two rules in Boost.Build. Take a look at Boost.Signals Jamfile --
it declares lib and dll target which are othewise identical.
I think we can introduce a new feature, say "shared", to control dll/lib
