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
     to date.

   You might try a CVS snapshot
   ( 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.
