I'm using boost 1.44. The complete command line(s) that we use to build
static boost libs on windows with MSVC8 are:

bjam link=static runtime-link=static debug
-sZLIB_SOURCE=F:\boost\ZLib-1.2.5 stage

bjam define=_SECURE_SCL=0 link=static runtime-link=static release
-sZLIB_SOURCE=F:\boost\ZLib-1.2.5 stage

The zlib stuff shouldn't matter. And I've used the following include:

#include <boost/iostreams/device/file_descriptor.hpp>

Thanks, Jeff
