Another problem (at least, one I had) might be that when passed the
-llibrary switch, ld (or gcc) looks for liblibrary.a; but the Boost
libraries are created as liblibrary.lib when bjam is invoked with
-sTOOLS=mingw. Creating a copy of the library and renaming it so that it
had the right extension fixed my problem.
