Thanks for the suggestion. No change yet.

1) I added the parameter to my user-config.jam file
  using gcc : 4.2.0 : /opt/gcc-4.2.0/bin/g++.exe : <target-os>cygwin ;

2) I added it to my bjam invocation:

$ bjam --without-mpi gcc-4.2.0 libs/thread/build//boost_thread -d+2

note: to enable GraphML support, set EXPAT_INCLUDE and EXPAT_LIBPATH to the
