 Boost 1.72.0 was released on 20191211. My initial testing shows 2 things:

 (1) the new API ''is'' compatible with every port I have installed that
 requires Boost --26 ports, out of the roughly 268 ports that `port echo
 depends:boost` returns -- so about 10%, which for my current setup --
 macOS 10.14.6 18G1012 / Xcode 11.2.1 11B500 -- all build cleanly & I saw
 no deprecation warnings in the build logs I reviewed (about 10 of those

 (2) The new ABI ''is not'' compatible with the prior one. Hence, we have
 to actually rev-bump ports to link against the new ABI.

 I'm going to create a PR for this update & post it here: first for Boost
 itself then rev-bumps for the dependent ports that I've tested. I'd
 encourage others to add to it.
