Nod. However, there are problems building dll's with mingw that are causing
us apparent regressions (the static library builds all work - which is what
we tested at the last release). See for a typical
example. The cause is a mingw linker problem rather than anything we can
fix in Boost.

I had a go at changing the regex/build Jamfile to static link when building
with mingw, but apparently the toolset names don't match up: is there any
way we can apply a build option to all gcc-mingw* toolsets?
