Automatic library linking in boost is done by #including the
<boost/config/auto_link.hpp> file.

In the date_time library this is done via the
<boost/date_time/compiler_config.hpp> file.

Have a search through the date_time tree for references to this
compiler_config.hpp file (there's a whole bunch of them), and you can work
where it is being included.

As for the WHY - it looks like the .lib file is needed for some posix_time
and gregorian functionality. I'm not too familiar with the lib so that's all
I can tell for now :)
