It may be worth clarifying that the difference between link= and

'link' is whether the Boost library itself is a static or dynamic
library. On Windows this manifests are a lib- prefix on the .lib for
static libraries, and no lib- on the import libraries for DLLs.

'runtime-link' decides whether the C++ runtime is statically linked or
dynamically linked into the Boost library. This is indicated by a -s- in
the filename if statically linked, no -s- if it's the dynamic CRT.
