Boost-Build :

I am trying to build Boost in Cygwin, but with toolset
msvc. What is the right way to do this? I tried the
following sequence:

1) build bjam using in tools/jam/src
2) 'configure --with-toolset=msvc'
(tools/jam/src/bin.cygwinx86/bjam is being used)
3) run 'make'

The problem is that for boost_thread the Posix threads
library is being used instead of the native Windows

This is not what I want. I want the comfort of Linux,
that is why I am using cygwin, but I want to build
everything natively on Windows, so no Posix threads.

I also tried to build bjam using build.bat in
tools/jam/src and then run configure (then
tools/jam/src/bin.ntx86/bjam is being used) and make,
but then I run into other problems (related to
differences of directories between cygwin and Windows,
it seems).

What is the right way to do this?
