Boost.thread is currently only available as a dll that links to the dynamic
runtime, to use it you will either have to:

1) do the same thing, and link to the dll runtime.
2) build your own cut down version of the lib (if you search the list you
should find other people who have managed to do the same, basically I think
it means leaving out the thread-specific-ptr code), then define
BOOST_THREAD_NO_LIB (to disable auto-linking) and link to your custom build
of the thread lib.
