Thanks Matthieu. As I mentioned I used the -fPIC option while building the static boost libraries as shown below: ./bjam debug link=static cxxflags="-fPIC -std=c++0x" stage But didn't help. Still getting the same error message. BTW, following is my system info, if that helps: Linux lily-linux 3.5.0-46-generic #70~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 9 23:55:12 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Kotesh ________________________________ From: Matthieu Brucher <matthieu.brucher_at_[hidden]> To: boost-users_at_[hidden] Sent: Monday, March 3, 2014 1:21 PM Subject: Re: [Boost-users] relocation R_X86_64_32 against If you want to compile something that will be in a shared library, you need to recompile Boost libraries with -fPIC. When switching to static libraries, this flag is not added. Static libraries don't need to be linked against Boost BTW.
