You are not missing a #define, you have too many of them ;-). Seriously, you
typically don't need to define anything before including a boost library.
AFAICT, you neither need to include auto_link.hpp. You only include
thread.hpp, which then does the rest automatically.
The error you are getting is due to the fact that you are trying to link
with a static C runtime, which does not work because thread itself is linked
with a dynamic runtime. In MSVC you should use either /MDd or /MD and
everything will work just fine.
