Perhaps I missed something, but did you determine why it isn't being
built? I'm not able to run a build at the moment so I can't test it
myself right now. Earlier in this discussion the problem of the
Boost.Threads dll requiring the C RTL dll and the Boost.Threads lib
requiring the C RTL lib, but does that problem relate to this one?

Also, I'm far from being a jamfile wiz, so if you could suggest
specific changes to illustrate what you think it should be, I'd
appreciate it.
