It seems that Martin linked to the boost libraries dynamically. The
example program might require the user to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH or
something equivalent ( on linux). It is entirely possible that
the user doesn't know about it. Either the document should mention that
LD_LIBRARY_PATH might need to be set or mention the rpath option of

Although looking at it
seems that the sample specifies linking statically so I'm not sure what
problems Martin was having.
