Upon reflection, it appears that while allowing

bjam libboost_foo-vc80-mt-whatever.lib

to work might be nice, it's not that easy. In particular, we might be using --layout=system, in which case such library does not exist at all. It might be easier to introduce new feature, say "letters" with values like: "mt-sdg" that expands to all the necessary features. I need to think about this more.
