we are really unlucky with this bug, don't we? :)

i hope it will be simple to iron out once we have the arm box...

if i had the arm box i'd firstly try to see if upstream cvs has the
same problem, maybe it has been already fixed somewhere. maybe someone
with the arm could try this test for us, it would be a good step forward.

BTW, they are rolling the new 1.32 release, it would be very nice to
have this bug fix in.

upstream boost site: http://www.boost.org/
upstream cvs: cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/boost co boost

i'm very short of free time, but maybe Steve is able to provide
.debs from cvs to help the arm testers, the build process is not that
