The build was tested in MacOS X, Linux and Windows and FreeBSD
before committing. I won't be starting a branch to fix the boost update
because there is nothing to fix in the boost update.

Really? Feel free to start a wiki page so we can evaluate them, and
prioritize them. At this time I only have interest on things that can
help the clang port.

The boost update is/was necessary: Linux/BSD builds are using the
system boost (usually more updated than the one we currently have)
and that means we can't detect if something doesn't work until it's too
late. The real reason for the update though, is clang. Without a clang
port AOO is dead in MacOSX and eventually in FreeBSD too.

We should *always* pray for the best.
