Install Boost by running the following commands:
./bootstrap.sh --prefix=/usr && ./b2 stage threading=multi link=shared
This package does not come with a test suite.
Now, as the
./b2 install threading=multi link=shared
parameter ensures that Boost is
built with multithreading support.
link=shared: This parameter
ensures that only shared libraries are created, except for
libboost_exception and libboost_test_exec_monitor which are created
as static. Most people will not need the static libraries, indeed
most programs using Boost only use
the headers, but omit this parameter if you do need them.
