Is this related to midl-toolset issues we discussed some time before?
C toolsets and BoostBook toolsets are not the only independent
toolsets. For example, IDL -> TLB generation isn't affected by
<runtime-debugging>, threading or <link> features, so the same type
library can be linked for all compilers and variants. But it can be
affected by <define> and other C preprocessor features.
