Subject: [Boost-build] Problem with pragma intrinsic(_InterlockedCompareExchange)

I'm not an old hand at building Boost (I did install 1.55 on a different
machine), so sorry if this is a trivial question.
I'm trying to build 1.56 on a Windows 8 system, using mingw and gcc.
b2 toolset=gcc --build-type=complete stage
This results in a number of occurrences of this message:
./boost/thread/win32/thread_primitives.hpp:180:0: warning: ignoring #pragma
I can't link any program that needs -lboost_thread; it complains about
undefined references to _InterlockedCompareExchange.
Is this just a matter of adding __stdcall to the declaration of
_InterlockedCompareExchange in thread_primitives.hpp, or is a different fix
Assuming I either fix the source myself or get a patch, how would I rebuild
without rebuilding all of Boost from scratch? Sorry if this seems like a
dumb question, but so far I've just followed instructions without really
knowing anything about b2, and I'm hoping not to have to do another
