After some experiments I think I understood. This option
"<runtime-link>static" will build one library:
* static library (ie. .lib file, under correct libboost*.lib
subdirectory), statically linked to runtime.
This library will be built under runtime-link-static subdirectory (and
possibly under runtime-link-static/threading-multi is multithreaded
variant was selected)

However this option "<runtime-link>dynamic" builds two versions of each
* dynamic library (ie. .dll and corresponding .lib file, under
boost*.lib subdirectory), AND
* static library (ie. .lib file, under correct libboost*.lib
subdirectory) dynamically linked to runtime.
In case single-threaded variant was selected, both libraries will be
built directly under debug/release subdirectories. If multithreaded
variant was selected, libraries will be built under
debug/threading-multi (or release/threading-multi) subdirectory.

Am I right ?
