It seems to me that your ln commands are wrong, because if you cd
to boost-trunk/libs, you'll have something like:

        $ ls -l log
        lrwxrwxrwx 1 ghost ghost 24 2011-04-10 11:35 log -> boost-log/trunk/boost-log/libs/log

and I'm pretty sure your boost-trunk/libs directory does not contain
subdirectory boost-log. Please try using absolute paths are link destinations.
