Subject: [boost] [thread] Jamfile issue

In my own Jamfile targets, if I refer to Boost Thread as:
alias thread : $(boost)//thread ;
error: No best alternative for boost_1_48_0/libs/thread/build/thread_sources
next alternative: required properties: <threadapi>win32 <threading>multi
next alternative: required properties: <threadapi>pthread
I could do this instead:
alias thread : $(boost)//thread/<threadapi>win32 ;
But that clumsy, I'd be dispatching between POSIX and WIN32 configurations,
which ideally should be done internally by Boost Thread's Jamfile.
Is there a better way to refer to Boost Thread?
