I'd suggest attempting to use the mingw toolset in Linux. Since it extends the
gcc toolset, and sets the -mthreads for you, it might work as is.

You will have to copy and modify it of course. First off to prevent the
-pthread you can convince the gcc tools that it's on a windows platform. Just add:

local NT = 1 ;

..before the "extends-toolset gcc" line.
