Presumably, when you've created a project in Visual Studio, those
libraries were automatically added. I don't know why, and whether they
are added unconditionally, or depending on the type of project your
create, or if the project file for RCF had them, etc. In particular,
if you create console application project, will it still link to those
So, Boost.Build should link to library X automatically if and only
if it's generally impossible to link an application without that
