I just took a quick look at QuantLib and *you already have everything you

Specifically: QuantLib uses a couple of Boost headers (shared_ptr and
config), and doesn't look to need the source building at all, *unless* you
want to build the QuantLib test suite which relies upon Boost.Test.
However, not only does Boost.Test work perfectly well with VC6, but based on
your previous messages, you already have built it!

Yes I know you got errors from the serialisation lib, but since QuantLib
doesn't use that, you can just ignore those for now, and get on with using
what you do have.

Happy yet? :-)
