For your specific use case, we can have <runtime-link> affect linking of
system libraries, while <shared> will affect user libraries.
lib my : a.cpp ;
exe hello : hello.cpp my : <find-library>pcre ;
Given this Jamfile, you can call
bjam shared=false runtime-link=dynamic
And "pcre" will be dynamically linked, while "my" will be static library.
For a more general case, we might try <find-library-static> and
Note that for use libraries, you can have this already:
exe hello : hello.cpp my/<shared>false ;
Will cause static linked version of "my" to be used, whatever build
