OK, understood. Then, we have the somewhat unfortunate situation that in
GCC environments
Boost.Build links / does not link Pthreads depending on whether the
threading parameter is multi / single,
whereas Boost.Config does not reflect this situation in any manner!

As most GCC environments (somebody correct me if I'm wrong) are nowadays
would it make sense to change GCC Boost.Build bjam rules so that
threading=simple results in
