Not quite. The warning in the output you've posted is about unused SHARED_LIB
target. You've exe which has lib in sources. When lib is generated, both
SHARED_LIB and IMPORT_LIB targets are created. The latter is consumed by
the generator. The former is not, and a warning is issued. In this case, it's
not good. But assume you've just got one of sources ignored without a
warning. This use case was the motivation for the warning: putting LIB in
sources for another LIB was ignored without a warning.

What is the best solution? Introduce a mechanism to say: "I don't care if this
target is ignored"? Or request that at least one target from each source
reference is consumed. E.g in

exe e : e.cpp d ;

if "d" generates two targets, but one of them is consumed, then no warning is
issues. If none is consumed, you see the warning.

I cannot reproduce. My local diffs in dependency_test are

When I run

bjam -n msvc-6.5, I get the attached output, which seems to include correct
preabmble for both compiler and linker. If I say

"using msvc : 6.5 ;"

I get just "cl"/"link". If you could send a reproducible example or a recipe
using CVS, I can look more. While I don't have msvc, "bjam -n" may be enough.
