Use of Boost libraries with QNX 6.3.3

Has anyone used the Boost libraries with this version of QNX?
Specifically, we're having difficulty getting a project to link. The
linker throws errors related to the asio and thread libraries.

The resolution of this issue may reside in the correct way to build the
libraries for use with QNX.

Any advice appreciated. Thank you.

QNX tends to have everything (or most) in the libc, whereas other systems
tend to split newer stuff into extra libraries, like libpthread, etc. You
can try to remove the libraries that are missing and see if it links.

Keep in mind though, if asio means POSIX async I/O, it is not supported.
Also threads can't be mixed with fork().
