Download Boost Libs in C:\boost_1_63_0

Compile boost system if you want (libboost_system-mgw51-mt-1_63.a precompiled in repo, no need to compile):

bootstrap.bat gcc

b2 toolset=gcc --with-system

Then you will get libboost_system-mgw51-mt-1_63.a in stage\lib of your boost directory.

Git clone the ceph-dokan, open cmd and cd ceph-dokan code directory, just input the command 'mingw32-make', after serval minutes you will get ceph-dokan.exe and libcephfs.dll.
