Sorry, but are you trying to do at all?

1) Building boost libraries

2) Using Boost.Build to build your own project?

for case 1) you would typically specify your toolset on the command-line
(altough specifying in user-config.jam gives more configurability) for
case 2) I would recommend specifying in user-config.jam.
There you also can specify the compiler beeing used. But if it nor
compatible with gcc, I am afraid you would need to create a new toolset,
and not using the gcc toolset.

In case 1) you would specify on the commandline
bjam link=shared
to get the shared libs. Note: for some libs this is not possible since
the lib author may have decided that only static is meaningful.
In case 2) you need to specify the defaults in your project settings of
your Jamfile (as another poster already has ponted out)

This is for case 2)

This is for case 1)
