While it might appear that you only use boost_system /indirectly/, your code is in fact using it /directly/ via inline functions in the boost_filesystem headers. You can see this for yourself if you take a close look at the boost_filesystem headers. While I do find this a rather annoying violation of encapsulation, you will find (e.g. with "nm -C -D") your binary will have boost::system symbols in it which are only satisfied indirectly via libboost_filesystem and which would result in breakage if libboost_filesystem drops that dependency and you don't explicitly link against it. Ideally, the headers should be fixed. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
