   I'm not really sure I understand your question. The example you
posted should work just fine - using a different install location on
different OS's.

   I just tested it on a bit different example:

install dist-lib
         <link>shared:<location>dist-shared ;

   Which correctly copied the xxx.txt file to dist-static in case
lint=static and to dist-shared in case link=shared.

   Hope this helps.
