But they do plan to fix them for the next release, right?
I want to make sure there's no dispute about the issues you
filed and that they will eventually get addressed.

So the .jam files you put together don't work for the 1.34.0
release of Boost? If that's correct, let's rewrite them to
conform to version 2 so that people have an easy way of using
the latest Boost libraries with stdcxx. Once you're done we
should publish the scripts on our site for people to download
until we get Boost to accept and ship them in the next release
of their libraries.

Okay. It would be good to keep track of all these issues in
some central location. How about creating a Jira task for
this whole project ("using Boost with stdcxx") and a subtask
for each problem you (and our users are likely to) run into?
