Package: libboost-test-dev
Version: 1.34.0-1
Severity: important

A test program I am using in an M4 script to look for the boost test 
library is as follows:
#include <boost/test/auto_unit_test.hpp>
int main() {
  return 0;

This program fails to link in the latest boost-test development package 
with the error:
/tmp/ccIn5vvz.o: In function 
undefined reference to `vtable for boost::unit_test::unit_test_log_t'
/tmp/ccIn5vvz.o: In function 
undefined reference to `vtable for boost::unit_test::unit_test_log_t'

This problem occurs on locally-built boost-test packages as well.
