I don't know. The current Boost package is the only Boost Cygwin package
so far. You could try to compile some older Boost than 1.33.0 from sources.
Actually, I tried to compile the test libraries of boost 1.33 myself
bjam -sTOOLS=gcc --with-test stage
And that command produced the test libraries for me. The only difference
from your libraries was that their extension was .lib instead of .a. How
did you manage to get .a libraries? Is there any difference between .a
and .lib in Cygwin?
When I changed the extension of boost_unit_test_framework to .a and
compiled and linked my test with -lboost_unit_test_framework I got a
However, I would like to be able to build my project with a vanilla
installation of Cygwin. This would make it easier for me to share my
project with other people since they would only have to install the
correct versions (preferable the latest) of the Cygwin packages to be
able to build it.
In what way is the test libraries broken under Cygwin?
