I had to use a boost library that requires a binary for the first time in a long time so I had to do a build. I followed the instructions here -- basically just executing
bootstrap
.\bjam
from my Boost root directory, and the build seemed to work. However according to the Getting Started guide I'm now supposed to have a directory like
C:\Program Files\boost\boost_1_42_0\lib
containing .lib files. I'm not seeing this. If I wanted to link to the boost Boost.Date_Time, say, I'm seeing its debug .lib in here:
C:\Program Files\boost\boost_1_42_0\bin.v2\libs\date_time\build\msvc-9.0express\debug\link-static\threading-multi
I can link to it and it works, but something seems wrong.
