boost, akonadi and rev-upgrade

I recently applied an over-due update to `port:boost`, and discovered a few days later that I could no longer start akonadi afterwards. All `akonadictl` did was print a backtrace (other options to start the akonadi server gave much more overwhelming error output), which fortunately led me to try a rebuild.
That fixed the issue.

Turns out it links to libboost_program_options, but rev-upgrade didn't catch any issues.

Should it have had?

Checking akonadi's svn log I can see no record of it ever having been rev-bumped because of boost.
