No. I'm just trying to build applications that use boost threads using
gcc and an msvc-built bjam on windows with boost 1.35.0 as I did with
1.34.1. I was not using, nor am I currently interested in using,
anything from mingw. In any case, Anthony seems to have found a
temporary workaround to the problems in the boost thread Jamfile:
bjam gcc target-os=cygwin threadapi=pthread
Now what I'd like is to learn of the appropriate patches to boost
build and to boost thread's Jamfile.v2 to restore 'auto detection" so
that I can go back to using
bjam gcc msvc-8.0 msvc-9.0 debug release
with boost 1.35.0 as I did in 1.34.1, in my (unchanged except for
boost) environment .
