Dear all,

When compiling the program below (which was stripped down to its bare mininum)

    #include <boost/container/static_vector.hpp>

    // Comment either of the lines marked as 1, 2, or 3 to make
    // the problem go away
    // Alternatively, uncomment line marked as 4 to make the
    // problem go away

    struct B final {
        B(void) { ; } // 1

    struct A {
        boost::container::static_vector<B, 32> vec; // 2
        B elem; // 3
        // ~A() {} // 4

    A *init(void) {
        return new A{};

    void end(A *a) {
        delete a;

    int main(void) {
        return 0;

The result is an unexpected undefined reference to an implicitly declared

    clang++ -O0 -std=c++11 -I/opt/local/include -o a a.cpp
    /tmp/a-31ee39.o: In function `init()':
    a.cpp:(.text+0x62): undefined reference to
`boost::container::static_vector<B, 32ul>::~static_vector()'
    /tmp/a-31ee39.o: In function `A::~A()':
    a.cpp:(.text._ZN1AD2Ev[_ZN1AD2Ev]+0x11): undefined reference to 
    `boost::container::static_vector<B, 32ul>::~static_vector()'
    clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see

I am no C++ Jedi, but I can't understand why this would be the case. I am even
more confused as to why commenting or uncommenting the lines as marked can
eliminate the issue. For what is worth, g++ 7.3.0 has no problem compiling this
code, whereas clang-6 and clang-7 show the same odd behavior. There is nothing
special with boost either, as I tried several versions. The one I am currently
using is 1.65.1.

If this behavior is expected, I'd be very happy if somebody could clarify this
to me.

Kind regards,
