Sorry for reposting this old thread, but I got no reply, so trying
this last time since it's really a showstopper for me.

As explained above, I am creating a static library which is included
in a shared library, the static library contains several boost libs,
but all are compiled with -fPIC.

If anybody got some advice on how to lead me in the right direction to
fix this, it would be much appreciated.
