1. The release version doesn't seem to have proper support for
building DLLs according to
and it's not clear from Beman's comment that it supports GCC on windows

Are you running one of the release versions, or from the CVS?
The release versions link OK with VC++ 6.0, 7.0, and 7.1, but
had no declspec support. The CVS version should be more
flexible, but the changes are recent so make sure you are up
You might try a CVS snapshot
(http://www.boost-consulting.com/boost.tar.bz2) if that's what you
2. Try going into the libs/filesystem/test subdirectory of your Boost
tree and invoking bjam -d+2 -sTOOLS=<whatever> there. If tests
build and run you'll know that things are working; the "-d+2" part
will also show you the commands that were used to link to the FS
library so you can replicate them yourself as neccessary.
