I found this before you posted here, and it was the key concept I was
missing. It was trivial to get things working "correctly" after I
understood what was going on here. I think I've got a good working
example of how things will work now. If there's interest I'll upload
a new Boost.Threads Zip file to illustrate what I've got, otherwise
it will wait until I'm ready to upload a new version. I'd like to
say that once you understand all the little details, however, that
this build system is a breeze to use!
