Subject: [Boost-build] bjam - windows - dll

I have a rule like this:

lib libParser
: <define>$(DEFINES)
: <link>shared

This works fine on Linux i.e., it generates a .so.
However, on Windows, it generates just an archive:

...updating 1 target...
msvc.archive bin\msvc-8.0\release\link-static\threading-multi\libParserProcessor.lib
...updated 1 target...

How can I have bjam generate a DLL on Windows instead of an archive.

Ps: Forgot to add how I'm invoking bjam, which is

bjam release link=shared runtime-link=shared
