I have discovered the issue. My apologies for wasting your time. My
coworker built boost 1.44 (on Mac/Linux) with the CMake version of boost
builds and the CMake version has a bug in that they don't include the v3
source in the final libraries. Once I modified CMakeLists.txt to add all
the v3 source files for filesystem, everything is linking fine.

BTW, I built boost on windows with bjam, which is why I never encountered
the problem. Thanks again for the help.
