Dear Juergen,

thanks a lot. I did not know that one has to rebuild everything after
changing the requirements. It seems to work now.

It is true, I did not read the starting guide thoroughly, I'll do that
now :-).

I am a bit confused about the library being a static library. Shouldn't
it be "boost_filesystem-vc90-mt-gd/s/-1_50.lib" instead of
"boost_filesystem-vc90-mt-gd-1_50.lib" then? Or did I get it wrong?

Thanks again,
