There is no way WinBoard will switch book depending on the selected variant. You would have to merge all the books into one.

That is, the variant is part of the 'hidden game state', like castling and e.p. rights, and positions that differ in those will be considered different, even if the board postion is the same. So there is no need to partition the book, positions from different games will always be considered different positions.
