Could not link against boost iostream


while trying to compile manually graph-tool on ubunto 20.04 by running
./configure, I'm getting this error message:
configure: error: Could not link against boost _iostreams

when checking the config.log file, it says:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lboost_iostreams

How can I solve this?


For us to be able to give you any kind of help at all, you need to give
us much more information than this. For example, how you evoked the
configure script, its complete output (not only some isolated error
message), and the entire contents of the config.log file.

But before you do this, it's not even obvious from what you wrote that
you installed the boost libraries.

If you are unfamiliar with compiling from source, I would strongly
recommend to use the available packages for ubuntu, since they will save
you a lot of time and effort.
