Hi all,

We included the header files of boost in VC++ 7.1

During linking the program automatically tries to
  link against the static library

However, "bjam install" does not create this library.
Though it creates the dll version of the thread
  library (i.e. thread*.dll and thread*.lib)

We tried various combinations such as following to
 get the static library built.

1) bjam --with-thread -sBUILD="debug <runtime-link>static
           <threading>single" install

2) bjam --with-thread -sBUILD="debug static single" install

3) bjam -sBUILD="debug static single" install

But none of the above worked.

We also tried to enable "BOOST_ALL_NO_LIB" macro
  so that we can specify the dynamic version of the
  library manually. It did not work.

We are using the dynamic version of runtime library.

The question I have is, how to build the library

Any help would be highly appreciated.

I have tried every possible thing and seem to be
  going nowhere with this issue.
