Just the print to stdout during cmake configure is blank, correct?

The build will use static linking with boost by default. In this case,
it wont print anything for boost libraries. And there is a define passed
to the build to control boost linking -- through magic MSVC #pragmas

So I think there is nothing to worry about here. :-)

Are you mixing a library built for Debug mode with an executable built
for Release mode? Perhaps by accident, like have you built UHD from
source, but there is a uhd.dll installed in the %PATH% from the official
UHD installer? Basically, any sort of mixing means an ABI
incompatibility, and things will bomb out very quickly.
