Boost-Build :

Good <time-of-day>!

I've finished adding BOOST_<LIB>_DYN_LINK to usage requirements. During
this process I've found these problems with Boost.Build v2:

1. Boost.Thread - uses [ ], this is not suitable for
cross-compilations. Besides, Boost.Thread's build system is slightly
different from the rest of Boost.

2. Boost.Test - didn't dare to touch it :)

4. Boost.Python - slightly different build system.

5. BGL-viz - as far as I understand only static linkage is supported on
NT. Should I add it to library's requirements? I can also add Jamfile.v2
for BGL-Python :)

6. Boost.date_time - 'boost-install' rule is used for library
installation. Should I use it for the rest of libraries?

And some general notices:
- Inconsistent formating of jamfiles.
- Lack of automatic shared-library exporter definitions.

I'm volunteering to correct these bugs and while I'm at it I can also
fix something else. Suggestions are welcome :)

With respect,
