  Well, I can reproduce this, but I don't know if recompiling is going to
help; there's no DLLs involved here, and the problem fixed in gcc-3.4.4-3
relates to passing C++ string class objects between dlls and exes.

  I'm going to try rebuilding the boost package JFTHOI, but I don't expect it
to make any difference.  I also notice this comment in the boost package build

# There are some problems with Boost DLLs for Cygwin. Mostly the fact that it
# does not generate import libraries. So there will be only static Boost libs 
# until the problem gets sorted out.

which concurs with what I discovered when I tried building the upstream

  Finally, PING! boost maintainer: has CRLF line endings.
Trivially fixable with d2u.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
