What exactly did you try?
when run from $BOOST_ROOT will always create stage/lib
if it completes successfully.

In the past when I get these I am easily able to fix it by reordering the #includes, or deleting repeated #includes, etc. But with a bunch of compiled code and headers I did not write I am not sure I can find the issue.

particular, which symbol is missing, and if possible
the actual code.
