Hi Anthony !

The latest change to Boost.Thread:

"feature.feature thrd-api"
as "symmetric" feature, adding "thrd-api-pthread" to the build paths on
linux. I'd like to have it asymmetric, so build paths will be as short
as possible. The problem with the "symmetric" property is that you
can't use "feature.set-default" to change the default value so the path
element will disappear.
Please find "thread.diff" with propose patch attached.
Also thread.txt with output without patch and thread2.txt will patched
The other thing I noticed is the usage of "" to distinguish
between nt/unix/cygwin. I think this should use "target-os" in order to
enable cross-compilation, but I don't know how to code this.
Therefore cross-post to Boost.Build list in order to get some pointer on
how to change
if [ ] = NT

if target-os = windows

or something similar.
