Thanks for your reply John. I've made some modifications to the patch
which I have uploaded to the tracker @

After I made the patch, I ran all the boost tests and nothing went
wrong. Are you expecting silent failures?

Note that the patch at the URL is a bit different than the one I posted
originally (after I did some real testing!)

Are you more for something boost thread specific? I don't know but imho
the libraries should differentiate between config requirements when
building vs when using.

Thanks again!
