Haclav,

I am using Boost's random number generator template library with cygwin 
for statistical simulations
and am very happy with it. It would be a shame to abandon support of the 
Boost libraries.

Can you point out to me where you see any Boost DLLs? I only see *.hpp 
template files.

Best,

Werner
