Boost.Context only builds for mingw if you have a MSVC assembler. Now, RedHat patches it, so Boost.Context can be built on RedHat(or CentOS). However, the author has refused to accept those patches unfortunately. When I build boost on ubuntu for mingw, I disable Boost.Context, which would mean disabling Boost.Beast as well.

Also, Boost.Asio works fine as it doesn’t use Boost.Coroutine nor Boost.Context. I think it provides its own stackless-based coroutines.
