hope im understanding your reply correctly.
in configure.ac i removed the -l and a.
LIBS="$LIBS libboost_thread_win32-mt"
then ran
./configure --prefix=/home/deadpickle/hprcc_terminal/win32 --host=i686-pc-mingw32 LDFLAGS='-L/home/deadpickle/mxe/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/lib/'
but still received the error
i686-pc-mingw32-g++: error: libboost_thread_win32-mt: No such file or directory

I'm trying to use the boost_thread libraries in my program and are having troubles linking to the library. Im using autotools to build my project and I keep getting the error

So far I have tried setting the LDFLAG in my configure call and specifying -llibboost_thread_win32-mt.a and none of these seem to be working. Any ideas?

Hi Jamie,

The flag "-lboost_thread_win32-mt" corresponds to the file "usr/i686-pc-mingw32/lib/libboost_thread_win32-mt.a". In other words, in your linker flag, omit the "lib" prefix and the ".a" suffix.
