Reported by: niklas@… Owned by: Dave Abrahams
Milestone: Boost 1.39.0 Component: python USE GITHUB
Version: Boost 1.38.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: python static linking dl pthread Cc:


When statically linking boost.python, you will get errors when it also tries to statically link libdl and and pthread.

The solution is to change a line in boost_1_38_0/tools/build/v2/tools/python.jam

line 657 from

case * : return <library>pthread <library>dl


case * : return
