Defining BOOST_ALL_NO_LIB (note that BOOST_NO_LIB is not correct) only
affects auto-linking. It does not affect symbol name mangling, which
differs for static libs and dlls.

I'd say there's some problem with Boost.Thread then. Could you try
defining BOOST_THREAD_USE_LIB when building your application? Also,
what is your Boost version?
