I have removed m4/ax_boost* in Git[1].  Unfortunately this leaded to
some configure errors.  I was able to work around

  1. error: possibly undefined macro: AC_MSG_ERROR

       by adding


       despite I'm quite sceptical about this error.  A websearch
       uncovers several instances of this error with no pattern
       that really applied here.  No idea whether there is a better

  2. AX_BOOST_BASE([1.55],...) created syntax error in configure script

     Thus I simply removed all arguments since I assumed that no actual
     version needs to be really checked since we have modern boost in
     all relevant releases.  Unfortunately this endedt up in:

g++ -fopenmp -O3 -ffast-math -pipe -fexpensive-optimizations -g -O2 -fdebug-prefix-map=/build/aevol-5.0+ds=. -fstack-protector-strong -Wformat -Werror=format-security -fopenmp   -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,-z,now -o aevol_propagate aevol_propagate-aevol_propagate.o ../src/libaevol/libaevol.a ../src/libaevol/SFMT-src-1.4/libsfmt.a   -lX11 -lz -lm

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

I have no clue any more how to fix this.  I'd be really happy about
any hint how to fix the current state in Git[1].

Kind regards
