OK, this assumption is correct. However, it's only one half of the story.

Today, I learnt that the code in the Boost.Build that is supposed to
delete the executables after a test ran successfully doesn't exist in BBv2.

My test results directory is exploding now and with statically linked
Serialization tests this means I need additional 1GB+ per toolset just
for Boost.Serialization.

I'm not sure I'll be able to deliver test results in the current state
of BBv2/statically linked Boost.Test.

The good news is that Volodya is already working on a remedy.

I hope there's a compelling reason for statically linking.
