According http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_43_0/more/getting_started/unix-variants.html#library-naming, *-mt means the library has multithreading support.
So it sounds like in particular boost_thread-mt is slower (at microsecond level) than boost_thread? Since I can imagine that boost_thread-mt involves a lot of locks...
Or for boost_thread-mt, it is the same as boost_thread since it is a thread library and so it considers and supports all sort of concurrency?
Thanks in advance.
