Thanks for the example, it helped me find the problem. I had left the
<library>boost_iostreams bit in the project usage-requirements. After removing
that both versions do work as you said. Adding <link>shared to the
boost_iostreams requirements also fixed the next problem, which was that libkar
was now linking to static versions of every lib, instead of just being built as

Thanks for the help.
