The other alternative to static linking might be to install boost
manually into /usr/local or a custom location (eg. /opt/boost), and
then use ./configure --with-boost=/opt/boost when building encfs.

Since encfs appears to use libtool, it should also use -rpath by
default (and hence the --disable-rpath configure option), which means
that the resulting encfs binary should correctly find the boost
libraries without needing to set $LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or put
/opt/boost/lib into /etc/ld.so.conf, which would cause problems for
other boost-using programs).  If it doesn't, then setting
$LIBRARY_PATH and $LD_RUN_PATH to the boost lib directory before
running ./configure && make, should have the same effect.
