Boost Users :

I'm having trouble with using Boost.Thread (1.34.1) on Mac OS X
I have an Xcode project ("BSD command line tool") that links to what
I believe is the static build of Boost.Thread (libboost_thread-mt-
d-1_34_1.a). However, when Xcode goes to run the executable, it gives
> dyld: Library not loaded: bin.v2/libs/thread/build/darwin/debug/
> Referenced from: /path/to/my/executable/executablename
> Reason: image not found
> Program received signal: "SIGTRAP".
If I run the executable inside an X11 shell, I get a similar error.
If I add the path to the .dylib to the $DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environment
variable, I can run the executable.
Which makes me wonder if somehow this .a file is really a .dylib.
What's also strange is that although the build directories for all
the other libraries have the same structure (e.g. filesystem/build/
darwin/debug/link-static/libboost_filesystem-d-1_34_1.a), the thread
directory has a threading-multi directory under the link-static
directory (meaning the file I am trying to link to is in thread/build/
I'm building all the libraries with bjam 3.1.15 and the command line
FWIW, I'm also using the Boost filesystem library with this
executable, without any compile, link or run-time errors.
Also: is there any plan to distribute the Boost libraries for Mac OS
X in a similar way to how they are distributed for Windows (i.e.
installer that has pre-built library binaries)?
