Doesn't Boost also have some file/threading classes in the meantime ?

I packaged boost. Boost is a classic example of an upstream package where they've gone off and written their own build system, so they have to maintain all the complexity of building on every system out there, and I had to add to that complexity for cross-compiling. I also did another C++ network environment called POCO, and they also wrote their own build system, completely different from the boost one obviously.
C++ programmers, eh - haven't they suffered enough already?
While we're on the subject of portability libraries, APR (Apache Portable Runtime) is another contender.
