[odb-users] Linking problem at Ubuntu 16.04

Not sure if this is your exact scenario, but the problem seems to come from
the fact that, with Ubuntu 15.10 and greater, the libraries from the Ubuntu
repositories are built with GCC 5.1 or later.  Starting with GCC 5.1, GCC
started using an ABI tag on C++11 library features, and any library built
with these newer versions of GCC will have this ABI tag embedded in them,
for certain things.  This becomes a problem, when you're building your own
code with an older (<5.1) version of GCC or any (at the time of this
writing) version of Clang.

In case it's relevant to you, there is an open bug for clang/llvm about this
issue: https://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=23529

Many thanks for that Boris, however I have previous tried contacting him
and had no reply - it is a real PITA as I have to package everything when
there are already binaries available...
