Nope. Some of them #define the same symbol.

The best way to find out how the libraries need to be built is to use
Boost.Build to generate the command lines by passing -o cmdfile on the
bjam command-line. Then you can inspect the contents of cmdfile and
figure out how to get your build tool to do the same thing.
