The test_exec_monitor is always built statically. The problem is this:


in libs/serialization/test/Jamfile.v2

It causes all libraries, including Boost.Test, to mark functions as
__declspec(dllimport). However, since you're linking to test_exec_monitor
which is always built statically, you don't get any DLL to resolve those
symbols. This seem to work on msvc, but CW is more picky.

Just use the BOOST_SERIALIZATION_DYN_LINK=1 or whatever is the right define
for the serialization library.

Does this help?
