I just played around with this for a sec and something like this
seems to work as expected:
> rule myrule ( name : type : properties )
> switch $(type)

> case IMPORT_LIB : return yyy.lib ;

Tested using the msvc toolset and it creates a DLL named yyy.dll and
its corresponding library names yyy.lib.
Note that here the myrule rule gets called three times - once for the
intermediate OBJ target, once for the SHARED_LIB target (i.e. the DLL),
and once for the IMPORT_LIB target.
Hope this helps.
