Subject: [Boost-users] thread linking strangeness

I am observing strange things while linking boost::thread on a linux
system with gcc 3.4.6.

If I link an app with
        -L[path to boost.thread] -lboost_thread-gcc34-mt
then it links fine.

If I link with
        [path to boost.thread]/libboost_thread-gcc34-mt-1_36.a
then I get linker errors with unresolved externals to things like:

I suspect it has to do with dynamic vs. static libraries. I have two
flavors built:

So I suspect that in the first case I am getting a dll while in the
second case the static link fails for some reason. Any suggestions/
tips to get the static link to work?
