I suspect this would not work with the current release, or you accepted,
that this project consists also of a DLL. Altough one with a custom name
I repeat, that I have also looked into this issue, and came up
with a solution that creates a "DLL on the fly".
I already sent some sketchy code to Michael Glassford for discussion,
and I am also planning to submit an addition to boost thread for
discussion to the list. (But first I have to learn bjam a little better before ;-)
This DLL is essential for detection of ending threads. You cannot
do this with a static lib! (This has been already extensively discussed.)
The necessity of the DLL arose together with the thread local storage
