Subject: [Boost-build] Building Boost Libraries for use with Intel's MKL

My apologies if this mailing list is not the correct place to discuss
this issue.

Am attempting to build Boost 1.38 with Visual Studio 2005. I am trying
to use MKL and Boost.Thread. MKL requires (for numerical stability) that
struct alignment be set to 16-bytes. There is an option for the compiler
to force this, but I can see the program dies at the point a thread is
kicked off.

I assume I need to build Boost.Thread with 16-byte alignment as well. If
that is so, where can I learn about the options for achieving this? I am
not having any luck opening any of the solutions files included in the
source release, so I am attempting to use bjam.
