I am glad you are making this fix but please consider
how to make the change in such a way that it doesnt
break existing jamfiles by adding an extra "lib".

I apologise for the fact that the email client
I have to use is a top-poster :-(

I've committed a change that prepend a "lib" prefix to all targets with
types derived from LIB, on Unix. (Cygwin is not considered Unix for this

This is needed mostly because on Unix, all libraries always have this prefix,
and there's no reason for us to be different. At the moment, prefix is not
configurable by the user because I don't want to implement any flexibility
unless it's needed. So if you need to customize the prefix, let me know.

This should be break anything, except that if you have "lib" prefix already,
current code will add yet another "lib". If that's a problem for anybody, let
me know -- I can make the code omit "lib" prefix if already present.
