Hello Bekim,

so, everything compiled just fine, but the linking stage (ld) failed. This is 
actually one of those nightmare scenarios which can take some time (and a lot 
of knowledge) to get right. Would it be possible that you have more than one 
BOOST version installed? That would actually be my first suspicion: compilation 
took include files of one version, but the linker took files from another 
version (because they came first in the linker path).
