How do I build the Boost libraries for Win32 C++ in release (with debugging symbols) mode?

I'm building a win32 C++ unmanaged app that using the Boost libraries.
I've encountered a crash in my application in release mode.

In order to track this down, I'm trying to build my application in "RelWithDebug" (Release with debug symbols).
I'm running into some weird behavior with the underlying boost libraries. I would like to build a release version
of this libraries that contains debug symbols.

So far I've really only seen the release & debug version of the boost libraries.

Can someone get me pointed in the right direction?
