Ok, some additional information that might help.

A collegue has downloaded the bjam sources and compiled them under cygwin. When
using this self-made bjam to cross-build boost, bjam produces the correct *.a
static libraries, but still produces dll files instead of .so files as shared
libraries. And the files are really windows DLLs, you can open them with the
dependency viewer and see that they reference the cygwin.dll.

Unfortunately, I do not know the command line my collegue used to build boost.

Maybe this is just because I do not know the correct bjam switch?
