I'm not sure how you determine the correctness of the BOOST_DISABLE_THREADS

Defining BOOST_DISABLE_THREADS causes Boost.Config to not define
BOOST_HAS_THREADS, even if the platform is detected as multithreaded.

boost::shared_ptr uses BOOST_HAS_THREADS to determine whether to synchronize
reference count updates, see for example boost/detail/shared_count.hpp:118:

    void add_ref()
#if defined(BOOST_HAS_THREADS)
        mutex_type::scoped_lock lock(mtx_);
        if(use_count_ == 0 && weak_count_ != 0)

On your platform mutex_type is defined in boost/detail/lwm_pthreads.hpp. It
doesn't use #pragma weak. I wasn't able to find #pragma weak, how it is
used, and the proper procedure in making a component "weakly pthread aware"
documented anywhere. If someone knows what to do, a patch would be
