Isn't this more of a compiler-specific issue than O/S specific? I get your
point though.

I'd prefer only platform B generating an error. If I explicitly request a
shared runtime library I'd like to either get it, or fail.

for compiler(s) not supporting this configuration or, perhaps, even decide
to link statically.
