Quoting David Ward <dward_at_[hidden]>:

Yes. The thread library now uses boost.date_time for all the timing
related features including condition waits, sleeps and timed mutex

You might get away without needing the date-time DLL: it depends on
your usage.

I'll talk to Jeff and see if we can arrange a header-only subset of
boost.datetime which won't force the DLL to be linked.
