Description of problem: Compiling a C++ program using boost::mpi fails to find the symbol "boost::mpi::environment::environment(bool)" when linking
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.41.0-25
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put the following into a file called stat_env.cpp
2. Load the compat-mpi module with
module load compat-openmpi-x86_64
3. Compile with
g++ -I$MPI_INCLUDE -L/usr/lib64/openmpi/lib -lboost_mpi -o start_env start_env.cpp
/tmp/ccQU3mJK.o: In function `main':
start_env.cpp:(.text+0x15): undefined reference to `boost::mpi::environment::environment(bool)'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
An executable and no errors

I think this should fix the problem. I don't quite understand how the object got compiled in the first place, as you should have hit compilation error already. But that, too, should go away with this patch.
Oh, or are you possibly compiling against compat-openmpi or some such? Then boost would see MPI_VERSION of 2 and expose the symbol. But the DSO's were still built against an openmpi with MPI_VERSION 3, hence the symbol wasn't included in the DSO.
Apologies, I didn't notice you mention compat-openmpi explicitly. No further questions then.
Verified for build boost-1.41.0-27.el6.
