Try using this for exe:

lib calc : basic_calc.c advance_calc.c calc.h ;
exe calc.exe : app.c calc ;

The problem was that you had two targets with the same name (calc) and that means that they are alternates i.e. boost will either build the lib or the exe when building the calc target. The .exe extension above is not used by boost build except for conveniently distinguishing to targets that should be names the same.
