I don't think LinkLibraries ever worked in Boost.Build.

Hmm.. <libraryfile> indeed has this problem --- you need exact name.
V2 has different mechanism for linking with prebuilt libraries, please take a
look at the docs ("boost_build_v2.html")

lib a : : <name>a <search>/opt ;

it's supposed compiler will take care of "lib" and "a".

Alas, I'm almost useless with this issue --- I'm a bit rusty about V1. Maybe,
someone else can help. OTOH, I think it's really better to spend time on V2.
