Please copy-paste the *exact* commands you have typed in the terminal. If you
have set LD_LIBRARY_PATH correctly, and bin/boostpath/lib/ contains you cannot get the same errors.

To begin with, you have a problem with finding shared library. No experimentation
with a static library is gonna to have any significance. Furthermore, if you
check 'nm' documentation, you'll see that -D is documented thusly:

           Display the dynamic symbols rather than the normal symbols. This is only meaningful for
        dynamic objects, such as certain types of shared libraries.

Naturally, static library does not have any dynamic symbols.
