That's why I said "at least".
The reason I was posting is that, if I understand correctly, the
non-Win32 static library builds should be restored since there was no
reason for their removal. Since I don't use any of those platforms, I
was asking for a comment from those who do whether this is a correct
In addition, the "at least" above implies, and other postings of mine
explicitly state, that as far as possible (either by means of limiting
features, or by means of Roland's pseudo-dll approach), I would like
to restore static libraries in Win32 builds. Since I haven't yet
attempted this, and since the static library in Win32 builds was
removed for good reasons by the original Boost.Thread maintainer, I
can't promise that this will work out, as I also stated elsewhere.
