OK, one more thing to try: can you set <target-os>cygwin in your
user-config.jam gcc setup?

using gcc : 4.2.0 : : <target-os>cygwin ;

The boost thread jamfile uses <target-os> to work out whether it's building
for cygwin or native win32. It appears that <target-os> is not set correctly
for you (which probably ought to be done in gcc.jam or somewhere like that),
so explicitly setting it might work.
