I've been testing Boost with eVC++ 4.0 and some headers-only libraries
work well (any, smartptr, etc.).
Visual C++ 8.0 supports C++ much better than eVC++ 4.0 so theoretically
it should be possible to compile.
But there is still a problem with...incomplete C library.
There are many missing C library functions on Windows CE-based
platforms (no localtime, time, asctime and more functions, no errno
object and related functions).

Here is my small package with implementation of some of these functions:

So, I'm inclined to say many Boost libraries will need to be
ported/patched and many will be unusable.
