Thank you, John,

I installed the libbzip package and that error went away. The wide char
is the only issue now.

If the Cygwin has no wide character support, how can I avoid building
those parts require wide character?

What is consequence to use boost binary built under Cygwin without wide
char support?

Right, the wide character archive classes won't build, because as the
message says Cygwin has no wide character support.

If you want to use the bz functionality of the iostream library then you

will need to install libbzip on your cygwin system.

HTH, John.
