It's worth mentioning that the reason this is necessary is because by default
only shared libraries are built, but by default static libraries are autolinked.
So an alternative to the above preprocessor definition (and the better option in
most cases, IMO) is to build static boost libs (either invoke bjam with
--build-type=complete or with link=static).
