No, there's no difference between building in your IDE or building with the
command line tools, you may want to define BOOST_ALL_NO_LIB throughout to
suppress automatic selection of the library name, and manually add your
library to your .exe's dependencies though.

No idea, you'd need to carefully examine command lines and the like to find
out, probably the lib is built against the default std lib, and your .exe is
built against the dinkumware one?
