Boost-Build :

Attached is a test case that demonstrates my problem.

You were right that in the simplest case it works. It worked fine with empty
jamroot, but then I added a project in it to specify static linking by
default, and this triggered the problem. So, in the attached jamroot, if you
comment out the line that says "<link>static", it will all work.

I am not sure if this is by design or if it is a legitimate bug. If it isn't
a bug, can someone please explain the logic behind this behavior?
