Boost Testing :

std::locale-support, which seemingly only applies to CW 8.3
for Windows, is not implemented in Boost Build V2, and
so this rule is lost in Jamfile to Jamfile.v2 translation
for the following libs, at least:


As a consequence, there are donzens of false regressions
on the CW 8.3 tests run with BBv2 in metacomm-v2, as
shown for instance at . Since
CW 8.3 for Windows is a residual platform, it is probably
not worth the effort to implement std::locale-support, so
we have two alternatives:

1. Force static linking for CW 8.3 Win in metacomm-v2,
possibly changing the local toolset.
2. Delete this column from metacomm-v2, given that
this platform is already being tested in metacomm, which
runs with BBv1.
