Beware of Boost-1.50

A quick head's up as I've just been bitten by this issue.

Both 3.5 and 3.6 branches fail at runtime when built with the new
Boost-1.50 libraries.

The error I got is: Undefined symbol "_ZN5boost6system16generic_categoryEv"

Building the same LO code bases with Boost-1.49 or previous versions
gives perfectly fine binaries.

The platform used was DragonFly/x86_64 but I have no reason to believe
other *nix systems would fare differently.
