It's a real pain. Basically, from what I understand, code that uses
MFC can't be linked with code that doesn't.

Yeah, and you can have non-MFC using GUI's and MFC using console

I just compared the command line I saw in Visual Studio with the one
generate by bjam. Here is what they mean:

/D "_LIB" /D "_AFXDLL" /D "_MBCS"

/D defines a preprocessor symbol

_LIB - I can't find any info for this one.

_AFXDLL - specifies that you are dynamically linking to MFC. It
seems odd that this has to be specified at compile time.

_MBCS - specifies support for multi-byte character sets.

Actually, after further testing, the only one needed is /D "_AFXDLL".
