I have already tried using the profiler mentioned below. It is a very slick thing. But it was not that useful on a complete run (that normally takes 20 hours or so) because the instrumented version takes orders of magnitude longer to run. In fact, after about an hour of running the instrumented version, the run was not even past the preliminary initialization stage :(.
That being said, I think there is surely a lot of room for more clever and faster code, but it simply is computationally intensive by nature....

As you are running VS.NET 2003, you could try the (free) community edition
of Compuware's profiler, downloadable from:

Instrumenting your application (and boost.thread) should help you to find
out the reason for the performance degradation when using the runtime linked
