Please note that no one has identified yet the issue: it's highly likely
that Armin has a dirty environment due to a previous (pre-boost) build
but if he starts with a clean build it will go fine. Again, quite a few people
reported a working debug build after the boost update.

Please, when we have identified the breakage cause and iff it's clear it
was my update I will be glad to revert it. I really need evidence though,
the changes were thoroughly tested and you cannot ask me to revert it
based on Rob's sudden's feelings about it. 

If I do have to revert it then I will simply drop it. It works fine here. and
I don't have anything to fix.
