Yes your are right-

This is expected. You have way too much "--" in your options ;-))

That should be
"toolset=msvc-9.0 threading=multi link=static runtime-link=static"

for b2 options.

Yes, because "runtime-link=shared" is the correct value.

even her "--toolset" is wrong and just working because you have only Visual
Studio 2008 installed.

Hope this helps.
