The recent switch of metacomm to BBv2 have exposed
a problem with CW 8.3 by which this compiler does not
define std::locale facilities when dynamic linking
is used. This problem crops up in lots of places:

I seem to recall BBv1 did not hit this problem because it
used static linking by default in CW 8.3, and, when
dynamic linking was required, it featued a special rule
called std::locale-support.

Given that this compiler is pretty much obsolete today,
I guess writing a std::locale-support rule for BBv2 is
not worth the effort, but at least the toolset used
locally by metacomm-v2 could be changed to use static
linking by default. What do you think of it?

Thank you,
