I suppose this is caused by the fact that some Magick++ libraries are static
on Darwin, or by a different linking model.

The idea to hack darwin.jam is the right one, ineed. Adding <linkflags> to the
end gives better control, and it's needed for gcc jam. If you send a patch
which moves $(OPTIONS) to the end of linker's command line for both link and
link.dll rules on darwin.jam, this would be very appreciated.
