Subject: [Boost-build] linux -mt tag gone?

Hi, I have a quick question. I'm switching for linking to a boost package on
fedora (i.e. "yum"-ed) to building from source, which also means I'm
switching from version 1.37 to an up-to-date version. Previously I was
linking to libs with -mt suffixes for multi-threading, but in new builds I
don't have the -mt. Some googling, (e.g.
indicates that recently the -mt was dropped and I shouldn't worry, but the
official documentation,
, still
says "Libraries built without multithreading support can be identified by
the absence of -mt." I'd just like to verify the most likely option, that
the documentation hasn't yet been updated to reflect the recent change.
