His problem is that if he builds a statically linked library and uses the
Boost threads library, he will be using a shared library and all the shared
RTL libraries also, since that is what the shared Boost threads library
needs to work.

I also have found that mixing static and shared libraries in any situation
quite often leads to problems. In this latter respect, one should use all
shared libraries or all static libraries, instead of mixing in both.
