Generally those sorts of problems occur when you use a different version
of the headers than the prebuilt libraries. Check your include and lib
paths at build time to see whether it's finding a different version than
you're expecting (eg. finding a local Boost instead of system Boost, or
vice versa).

You can also run ldd on the executable to see which version of the Boost
shared libraries it's trying to load at runtime and whether this is the
one you expect or not.
