Please zip the complete output next time.

If this is the complete output, then you are not doing a complete rebuild.
Boost.Build does not automatically rebuild after changing requierements and
#defines, so either use "-a" to rebuild everything or manually remove your
"boost-build" folder.

This is the _static_ library, according to

The autolinking magic is incorporated into nearl _every_ object file, so only a
clean rebuild will resolve this mess. The linker output shows that Boost.Build
is linking against the shared libraries.

Please read at least the getting started guide and
if you use Boost.Build on your project.
