Building Boost on Windows

Recommended Posts

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.

If you follow the guide, your libs are in ...\stage\lib

The bin.v2 Directory contains the files that your compiler needs for building.
