Subject: [boost] How to correct when Auto-link gets it wrong in VS

I installed boost both with bjam and with the BoostPro installer, both
times with the same option. I specified that it should install as
Multi-Threaded Debug DLL. I'm using Visual Studio 2008 EE. I
followed the steps here:

But Visual Studio won't link, it says it can't find:
libboost_system-vc90-mt-sgd-1_44.lib, which is because the file really
is: boost_system-vc90-mt-gd-1_44.lib

According to this page:
the problem is that VS is trying to find the static library, although
I installed the dynamic one. I can't find in the getting_started
where you tell VS which version to use.
