On a second look, I see that this specific test has <link>shared in
requirements. I wonder how V1 deals with it -- I see that some command
lines are produced, but I'm not sure what they do.

Can you go to libs/config/test/link and run the "link_test" with V1.
Something like:

   bjam -sTOOLS=como-win32 test
