[pkg-boost-devel] Problems using "boost" from unstable

Hello there,

I downloaded and compiled boost using
apt-get source bcp --compile

and installed all generated deb-files. But in my lib-Dir, there are no
libraries like "libboost-filesystem.so" or "libboost_signals.so" - only
some named "libboost_signals-st.so" or
"/chroot/sid/usr/lib/libboost_signals-mt.so". That causes some projects
to fail while linking.

Is it a bug that these links are missing or just a new "feature"? In
testing and edge, the links are there.

How can i configure the build so, that it creates these links?
