Boost 1.36 on Cygwin - Hints, Tips, Known Problems, and Solutions for Windows

Dear All:

In the above in “boost 1.36 on Cygwin” it is mentioned,

“$ ./configure --with-libraries=thread,date_time”

for the configure command. But while configuring I ended up with the
following error

*configure: error: Could not link against libboost_program_options!

*The solution to this problem is to use the following as a configure

“$ ./configure --prefix=$BOOST_PREFIX

Thanks loads.

Kind regards,
