Boost filesystem3 not found when building Gazebo from source

I am building Gazebo 1.3.1 on Ubuntu 12.04 and have all the dependencies needed for the build in place. I am using Boost library version 1.52. The build process has no problems through configuring using cmake, but during linking the gazebo executable file, I run into the message

common/ undefined reference toboost::filesystem3::detail::status(boost::filesystem3::path const&, boost::system::error_code*)'`,

along with other errors in finding Boost filesystem3 calls.

I have applied the patch from here but it still does not fix the filesystem3 compatibility issue.

Has anyone compiled Gazebo using Boost library 1.52, and resolved the filesystem3 conflicts?

This problem was a result of having multiple installations of lib Boost.
