You should be able to do "exe myapp : src.cpp lib1/<link>static
lib2/<link>shared ;", I believe -- I haven't been able to find where I
did that before.
If you want it controlled by a feature, I think you'll have to make your
own, since <define> isn't one of the features that differentiate between
builds. Something like this _might_ work:
feature program_options_link : shared static ;
lib program_options : $(sources) :
exe myapp : mysrc.cpp program_options coollib :
