Hi list,
I wrote a set of M4 macros to use the Boost libraries with GNU
Autoconf. I did not find any macro that was reliable enough. If
you're interested, you can have a look at the code:
The code is currently under GPLv3+ but if Boost wants to ship this
with Boost itself, and if doing this requires license adaptations,
I'm inclined to use another Free license.

The macros are pretty simple to use, I've tested them on MacOSX (PPC/
Intel), GNU/Linux (various distros, including Debian), Windows (XP,
with MinGW, Cygwin and MSVC). The only problem I ran into is with
Boost.Thread and MSVC:

I can get the build to succeed if I use /MT, but I'd like to use /MD,
not /MT. Any idea?
