Yes it seems that in command line by default is W1. If you set the /Wp64
flag (detect 64-bit
portability) you will get warnings level 1 and they can be seen using bjam
without setting the Wx flag.
So, seems that W1 is by default ...

So, is it ok if for the boost.thread dll and for the app I will use the /MT
flag (multi-threaded)
instead of /MD (multi-threaded dll) that you are using when building with
