Thank you. Note to self: Next time I need to build Boost, this is what I should do while experimenting:

bjam --build-dir=c:/boost-build/ --toolset=msvc-8.0 --build-type=complete

That builds all combinations of release/debug and dynamic/static libraries. Cost: Roughly 2 GB disk space.

    adding a -j 5 (well, ncpus + 1), if you don’t mind hammering the machine for a while, will probably go faster.

    I used to do this, now I just use the BoostPro Binary Installer for Visual C++
