I suspect this message means that you need to add
~/Library/boost_library/boost_1_40_0/lib/ to the runtime libraries path.

On command line, this can be done via the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH variable,

        set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/Library/boost_library/boost_1_40_0/lib/:$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH

you might want to manually expand ~ to your home directory above -- I don't know
how OSX shell behaves here.

I also don't know how to do this in XCode -- I suggest you first try running the
binary on the command line, with the above variable setting, and if it works,
check the XCode manual for a comparable setting.
