Description

Boost comes badly for cygwin. Mainly is assumes that cygwin is Windows environment where cygwin does everything to be as close as possible to linux. I found here what cygwin people do each time they want to compile boost for cygwin: https://github.com/cygwinports/boost Could we integrate those patches to boost so that boost comes ready to be compiled in the future?

These will need to refiled as one ticket per library - otherwise no one will see it.

I think best way to report such general issues is to post to Boost development list ​https://lists.boost.org/mailman/listinfo.cgi/boost

Can we close this?
