Just noticed that with toolset=msvc the library is called
"libhello.lib". Most libs that comes with the MSVC compiler do not have
the "lib"-prefix, so I guess boost.build should have called this
Supported by this error:
"LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'hello.lib'"
depending on "hello"-lib does not look for "libhello.lib" but "hello.lib".
Renaming it to "hello.lib" makes it link.
I did a manual fix of this, and with the two fixes combined the
exe-jamfile works with both mingw and msvc without changes.
type.set-generated-target-prefix STATIC_LIB : <toolset>msvc : "" ;
