I've managed to use the vc71 .sln files to build the
serialization library, but now I have a question that probably seems
How does Visual Studio know which .lib file to try to link
against? I'm using the headers from CVS, and Visual studio in compiling
my project is trying to link against
libboost_serialization-vc71-mt-sgd-1_33.lib, but my project does not
mention this file, so I am confused about how to point Visual studio at
the library generated from the CVS source.
