Subject: [Boost-build] Build Boost on WIndows with zlib
From: Paolo Tosco (paolo.tosco_at_[hidden])

Dear all,

I have tried to build Boost 1.59.0 on Windows with MSVC 2015 including
zlib support for iostreams.
While this has never been a problem on Linux, I cannot get the "zlib :
yes" message from b2, and I always get both
libboost_iostreams-vc140-mt-1_59.lib and
libboost_zlib-vc140-mt-1_59.lib, while I should only get the former if
zlib had been recognized.

This is the command line that I have used:

b2 -a -q -j4 address-model=64 link=static threading=multi
runtime-link=shared variant=release --with-iostreams

according to the instructions found in

I have also tried to set the environment variable as suggested in

but this didn't help either.

Could someone tell me what am I doing wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help, kind regards
