This causes Boost.ProgramOptions symbols to be exported in any shared
object or executable which links in Boost.ProgramOptions i.e. you
reexport the same symbols.
So, as I already said, don't do that. Only symbols whose typeinfos need
to be seen during RTTI lookup should always be BOOST_SYMBOL_VISIBLE.
That is generally types thrown as exceptions, and anything else subject
