I have successfully built Boost using the command:
bjam.exe "-sVC71_ROOT=c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
2003\Vc7" stage

This creates the four thread libraries (libboost_thread-vc71-mt-s-1_32.lib,
libboost_thread-vc71-mt-s.lib, libboost_thread-vc71-mt-sgd.lib and
libboost_thread-vc71-mt-sgd-&_32.lib) which all have a -s tag, however the
library I am looking for is libboost_thread-vc71-mt-1_32.lib (without the -s

I believe that the -s flag stands for "Static link to runtime" and that
there are some issues to do with static linking to the thread library on
Windows. However, I still haven't figured out how to create this library
file without the -s.
