My questions are: Can these 4 libraries be compiled and used on WinCE? I'm not seeking a theoretical answer but rather "Has this been accomplished?".

I was looking into compiling Boost on WinCE about 3 years ago. The conclusion I came to was that I would need to use STLPort to have any hope of doing this which wasn't really an available option for me at the time. I'm sorry - I know that is not as concrete an answer as you are looking for, but it's the best I have to offer.

As an aside, something that did build for me (although I didn't use it) was ACE and I think I even built POCO for WinCE. These are not a substitute for Boost, but I thought I'd mention it in case it would be helpful to you.

Thanks Shane. All of my attempts have failed and I'm using STLport. I CAN get boost::system compiling but that is only a single file. :-)
It would be great to hear from anyone else that has/is attempted/attempting this.
