This is the stubs library for the DLL version of the runtime library. It seems
that the VC++ Toolkit only installs the static versions of the runtime

BBv2 default is for dynamic runtime library linking. With this it set compiler
option /MD which requires this library. For static linking from the command
line you need to build with "bjam --v2 link-runtime=static"

This will only be possible if you already have these additional libraries
installed as part of another product. Visual C++ 7.1 (aka Visual Studio .NET
2003) for example!!


The new toolkit is very useful if you want to do multi compiler regression
testing from Linux. Once it is installed it can be easily executed under
