Um, as parts of Boost are becoming parts of the C++ libstdc++ library, this isn't accurate. We have very light usage of boost, mostly just a few typedefs and thread support. It would be entirely possible to use glib instead, but you'll have the same problems on win32 as you do with Boost. I do find boost drives me crazy sometimes when porting Gnash, bjam truly sucks as a build system, and boost barely cross compiles.
