Boost-Build :

I hope someone can put me out of my misery :)

I'm building the boost trunk with MinGW using:

bjam toolset=gcc variant=release threading=multi link=static --builddir=p:\boost
--libdir=p:\boost --includedir=p:\boost install

The libraries that are build have a .lib extension, rather than .a.

Is this intentional? It means I cannot link boost libraries in to my programs in
the normal way (e.g. -Lpath/to/libs -lboost_thread-mgw42-mt-sd-1_35) as the full
library paths cannot be resolved by the linker.
