FYI, I've tweaked the boost thread tests to disable language extensions
with a modification of the patch I sent earlier. The tests compile and
pass both with and without language extensions. Indeed, boost threads
builds as it used to as well although the patch does alter this part of
If my jam-fu was any good, I'd figure out how to test both combinations
automagically if it were necessary.
The modification of the patch I sent earlier was basically to have
thread/detail/config to say:
if msvc && using thread library:
// don't need windows api
else: // not msvc or building thread library
Can I get some direction from someone who cares about this?
