Oh yes you can use them :-)

For linking to the dll's, just pass the name of the dll on the linker
command line, no need for a .a file at all. For static linking you can
either pass the linker the full name of the .lib file, or else rename it to
a .a extension so you can use -lboost_regex to link.

HTH, John.
