I suppose those changes will go to next boost version? Then, please not that
there are plans to switch to Boost.Build V2, which allows to write:

lib boost_serialization : ........... ;

run $(sources) boost_serialization ....... ;

and then run

bjam link=static link=shared

So you don't need to write two duplicate statements. I think there's V2
Jamfile for serialization already, so you can use that.
