Hi Vladmir, thanks for your response.

Since I am using Dev-C++, which I believe uses gcc version 3.4.2, I
used the command

bjam --toolset=gcc-3.4.2 stage --with-thread

today, as per the instructions here:
(I only require the thread libraries)

Initially I recieve about 20 or 30 lines of the following error:

warning: Unable to construct ./stage-unversioned

After this I get many errors, such as:

...failed gcc.compile.c++

for lack of

and finally

...failed updating 72 targets...
...skipped 20 targets...
...updated 13 tagets...

And still no libaries in the \stage\lib folder.
