That would have been me.

Note that building static libraries does not fix the issue for msvc users,
and the instructions are I believe still wrong: the problem is that for msvc
it's not enough to simply have built the static libraries as well: they need
to have been built against the correct msvc-runtime-variant as well.

So for example, a new user who creates a VC++ project, adds a Boost example
program to it, and tries to build... will get linker errors because the
debug versions of the Boost libraries haven't been built by default, while
the MSVC IDE will be expecting them by default.
