        I think it is relevant. So there ought to be
        a different set of libraries for each version of gcc?
        For each combination of BOOST_NO_IOSTREAM,
        BOOST_NO_TYPEID and so on and so on? For the
        misguided sake of an ABI?

        I've used boost for quite a while but never been
        interested in using the generic shared libraries.
