Yes, that's true.

Outside word don't need to compute anything. When distribute in binary
form developer must provide description what lib when to link. To
integrate to some BBv2 setup one could write:

lib foo : : <file>../lib/foo-1.0-blah-blah.lib <threading>multi;
lib foo : : <file>../lib/foo-1.0-blah1-blah1.lib <threading>single;

and so on. Or may be I am missing something?
