Thanks for your reply.

My intention is to write a cross-platform application
(Linux, AIX and Windows) using the boost libraries -
and maybe Qt in the future. I was wondering, can I use
bjam with gcc 4.2.3 or 4.3.0 on Windows to produce a
win32 executables? Do the boost libraries on Windows
compile properly with gcc? My assumption is that using
the same compiler on all platforms will make it
simpler, right? Any thoughts on this?
