I traced the linker (ld) and it autolinks against the dynamic libraries
when I dont specify -static on the command line and against the static
libraries (libboost_serialization.a) when I do specify -static, which is
what I intended. If I specify the name of the library on the command line,
as you suggest, this doesn't solve the problem (same results).

Therefore, an incorrect library selection doesn't seem to be the problem
by the linker.

Thank you.
