Right, it is user configurable, which I guess is what you were suggesting
for boost.threads?

From the STLPort _site_config.h file:
 * Uncomment this to force all failed assertions to be executed through
 * user-defined global function:
 * void __stl_debug_terminate(void). This allows
 * you to take control of assertion behaviour for debugging purposes.
 * Default routine throws unique exception if __STL_USE_EXCEPTIONS is set,
 * calls abort() otherwise.
 * Note : If you set this macro, you must supply __stl_debug_terminate
 * function definition somewhere.

There are some other options for debugging as well. You can read all
about it below at

I would be an advocate of this type of approach for boost.threads.
