After looking around in the source code of (Boost.)Log I found this:

#if defined(_DLL) || defined(_USRDLL)

If a DLL is created in Visual Studio _DLL or _USRDLL is defined by default
- which means the library is dynamically linked. As no DLL for (Boost.)Log
is created though linking obviously fails. After removing the code above
the library is statically linked. I get then the following linker error
but that's something I try to work on next:

error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "class boost::shared_ptr<struct
boost::logging::logger_impl> __cdecl
boost::logging::default_log_manager &,class
std::basic_string<wchar_t,struct std::char_traits<wchar_t>,class
std::allocator<wchar_t> > const &)"
referenced in function "public: __thiscall
boost::logging::logger::logger(class std::basic_string<wchar_t,struct
std::char_traits<wchar_t>,class std::allocator<wchar_t> > const &)"
