OK, mostly I was in desperate need of help, because of the extremely
irritating behaviour of the emulator included with the IDE (I don't have any
real hardware). After three days of fighting with it, I found out that the
system can't use libnames longer that 32 chars, including the terminating
NUL. Hell, it reminds me of 8.3 filenames and the like, I don't get it...

The good message is that boost_threads now run under the emulator. I will
start cleaning up the patches (I commented lots of code, suspecting the error
there and not in this BEEEPing excuse for a linker) on monday, and put them
online. Because of the similarities in compilers, I confident that evc4 will
be able to use boost to the same extent as VC6, which is a lot already.

I'd appreciate if there was a preprocessor makro I could use to distinguish,
any suggestions how to name it canonically? Also, I wonder if there was a use
for a makro that turned off use of IOStreams, because the native stdlib
doesn't have any, and things like shared_ptr could work out of the box then.

As a related question, I wondered about this statement:

Last time I asked about this, I thought the consensus was that it was intended
for library users. Did I miss anything?

cheers and a nice weekend
