>Yes this fixes it, even if I don't really understand why it should be
needed (not many boost libraries seem to set it and apparently mostly in
relation to linking Boost.Thread).

I don't really understand the "Super Fancy Magic Linking(tm)" that
happens when msvc is used either. But for some reason it decided it
wanted the multi-threaded version but by default Boost.Build compiles
single threaded versions. On linux, it would have worked. Easiest
solution I know of is to use the multithreaded version and call it a
day, I doubt it really matters anyway (what is a clock cycle or 2).

Glad it is working. If a guru has a better explanation, I would love to
hear it.
