I just built and installed boost using the following on cygwin

./bootstrap.sh --with-libraries=chrono,date_time,exception,filesystem,graph,graph_parallel,iostreams,math,program_options,random,serialization,signals,system,test,thread,wave  link=static link=shared threading=single threading=multi

then I ran the below,
./b2  --layout=tagged

and the message indicated that it:

failed updating 2 targets and skipped 7 targets....

but I continued and ran

./b2  --layout=tagged install

however, I look in /usr/local/lib and I only have those libraries with suffix -mt

My programs are looking for the libraries without the -mt suffix.

Can you please let me know what I need to do to get those libraries.
