Ok, I wasn't sure either, but I don't remember setting it with Boost 1.37.

No, it was x64 before as well, same system. And I'm sure I used -fPIC on
all of my code.
Thinking about this, shouldn't be -fPIC enabled on Linux/x64 by default?
Otherwise, you can't link Boost statically into a .so without changing
the build parameters. Or are there any negative effects by enabling -fPIC?
