Most of the boost libraries' implementation is either in header files,
or in a compiled library. Class boost::random_device is an exception:
the implementation is found in libs/random/random_device.cpp, but this
file is not built into any library.

This issue has been raised by a Debian user (
and earlier (
but never addressed.

I wanted to confirm whether this is a bug or is by design.
