It makes the library completely unusable for me, since I need to link to
it from a shared object. I imagine I am not the only one attempting to
do that.

Right now I am forced to drop crucial functionality in Debian for a
library that I develop (http://graph-tool.skewed.de) simply because of
this bug.

BTW, the fix should be fairly trivial.

I wonder why this library is being compiled static-only in the first
place, since this is not the default in Debian. All other boost
libraries are compiled as shared objects as well.
