I have not figured out any existing way to do this. Can I propose
adding the attached patches to tools\build\v2\tools\builtin.jam and
tools\build\v2\tools\msvc.jam? They create new 'exelinkflags' and
'dlllinkflags' features that can be used to pass options to the linker
command line specifically either for executable link actions or for dll
link actions. Does anyone have an objection to this? Or perhaps
someone has a different implementation in mind that might solve the
problem better?
