Not necessarily. A boost library should have at least one
implementation that doesn't depend on external libraries, but other
implementations may. For instance, on Win32, Boost.Threads normally
uses native Win32 API calls, but it can be compiled to use the
pthreads-win32 library (not sure how well it currently works,
however--it has been that way for a long time but I believe it has
been a while since anyone tested that configuration).
