I haven't checked that, but at least the serialization jamfile seems to
support static linking (it does define BOOST_SERIALIZATION_DYN_LINK=1
when <link> is shared, but that's only to correctly define the
dllexport/dllimport macros).

I have this setting to test my libraries which have no linking requirements.

Good luck,
