As far as I can remember, the problem with ABI compatibility was with boost/asio/detail/atomic_count.hpp. You can force ABI compatibility using BOOST_ASIO_DISABLE_STD_ATOMIC definition. I have not detect any other ABI compatibility problem between C++03 and C++11.

That page explicitly points out that choosing a standard version with
-std does not affect the ABI:

"Although the changes were made for C++11 conformance, the choice of ABI
to use is independent of the -std option used to compile your code, i.e.
for a given GCC build the default value of the _GLIBCXX_USE_CXX11_ABI
macro is the same for all dialects. This ensures that the -std does not
change the ABI, so that it is straightforward to link C++03 and C++11
code together."
