There are a number of _r interfaces on HP, they are only available if
_REEENTRANT is defined, which I would assume -mt activates. I don't
know anything about Boost.Build, but I'd guess the best way to handle
it would be to require -mt for filesystem, and not build it if -mt is
not requested.

I always define _REENTRANT in my stuff, but its not terribly
performance critical stuff. HP isn't like MS where you need uniform
mt or not across all translation units if you want happiness, but I
wouldn't think you'd want to enable mt settings behind the users'
