I think there's still a problem with static libs that use searched libs. For

lib snmp : : <name>snmp ;
lib Libb : Libb.cpp snmp : <link>static ;

will include snmp.lib in Libb's rsp file.

I have shamelessly hacked response-file in builtin.jam in order not to
include libraries in static libs, but I'm sure there's a better way to it.
Pointers to how to fix this would be appreciated.
