There's no install support on V2 yet, so moving for that is not an option :-(

Well the bad news is that there isn't a way to do that. This is because those
two are declared separetly, that is the static is one "lib" target, and the
dynamic is another "dll" target. They just happen to share the same name.

The situation is better in V2 as it uses a single target and produces
different version based on what you ask to build. But like I said no "install"

The best you could do is try and change the top level v2 build Jamfile to
produce a stage of the libraries you want.
