I already did that, since i did a rebuild while boost-defaults was
pointing to .46. You can find the results in collab-qa svn, in
If it's only 237 packages, I would prefer if you rebuilt them manually:
the time taken to organize the rebuild is likely to be higher than the
time it would take to just rebuild them locally.
