This is a known (*) issue with GCC 3.4, you must explicitly define
BOOST_DISABLE_THREADS if you are not going to link with -pthread.
http://lists.boost.org/MailArchives/boost/msg64550.php and many more
THIS ISSUE IS GOING TO AFFECT USERS, IF BOOST DEVELOPERS STILL DON'T
KNOW ABOUT IT THEN IT NEEDS TO BE MADE MORE OBVIOUS.
How about something on the front page of www.boost.org ?
This doesn't only affect users of new versions of boost, anyone who
switches to GCC 3.4, even with an old Boost release, will start getting
these linker errors.
I'll push the GCC developers to say something in the release notes for
3.4.2 if it doesn't get fixed for that release (it's scheduled to, but I
don't think it's very high priority)
