Not quite on weekend, but I think this problem is fixed. There was a code
that was disabling shared lib/static runtime combo. I've modified that
code to not apply to CW.

This means that if somebody just builds (not tests) Boost with CW, he'll get
shared lib/static runtime combos too, which might be a feature or a bug
depending from your point of view.
