Any feedback on this, please? Thank you!

Last Monday I wrote:


A couple of weeks ago we decided about the convenience of
forcing static linking of Boost.Test on MSVC++ 6.5, given
that DLL linking is definitely not supported for this lib
on this environment, so that some tests for this lib would
pass instead of showing as misleading failures. As a result,
Roland added the following conditional requirement to the
RC_1_34_0 branch of libs/test/build/Jamfile.v2:

lib boost_unit_test_framework :
 $(UTF_SOURCES).cpp : <toolset>msvc-6.5:<link>static ;

Now, the very same problem is showing for MSVC++ 6.5 +
STLport in speedsnail-msvc-dp, see for instance .

Shouldn't we then extend the <link>static requirement to
also cover this case? I don't know whether the following
would do (are wildcards supported in this context?):


or else we need an extra requirement or a smarter
