Hi Caleb,
the code that controls this is:

  flags LINK-RUNTIME <runtime-link>static : static ;

in sun.jam. If you have a reliable way to detect that it's Solaris 10, you can
wrap the line in conditional.

Otherwise, we might need to disable <runtime-link>static unconditionally. I'm
not so comfortable about silently ignoring an option -- after all it's
typically specified specifically to get static binary, and if we can't we
better warn the user. But I've no time for fully generic solution ;-)
