Ok, good to know that. Thank you.
But how come that it seems not to be required to link against Boost.System
when using boost-1.40 or boost-1.41 even though Boost.Filesystem is used and
also included during linking? Has this requirement been introduced only
recently? If so, it would be interesting to know since when exactly.
