No, it cannot. Though we hope that it might in the future, we haven't
yet determined whether this is possible.

We intentionally allow the static library to be built for currently
unsupported compilers so that people can experiment with their own tss
cleanup for those compilers. The hope is that this will help to get
those compilers supported. If you try to use the static library for an
unsupported compiler and don't provide your own tss cleanup method,
Boost.Threads generates a link error to prevent you from doing this.
