That is what I was describing ! Evidently I was not clear enough. The
change to clang-linux.jam in the Boost Build develop branch sets the
threading model for clang with gcc on Windows to -pthread rather than
the previous -mthreads, which was causing problems. Its a small change
but then again I will never claim credit for being a bjam programmer
<g>. Testing this build of clang on Windows targeting mingw/gcc with
various Boost libraries seems to work very well for me. If all this is
already known I apologize for the redundancy but I am very happy about
having another excellent compiler under Windows with which I can test.
