Comment (by kencu):

 boost is it's own very complicated animal.

 look through the source for "jam" files and look at the Portfile for these
 are hacked to do MacPorts' bidding.

 It is frankly very complicated sometimes to make boost obey.

 Only someone running such a system would have any chance of getting it to
 work, so most others will be unlikely to help.

 I never tried building it ppc/ppc64.

 It may only be fixed when newer gcc versions have a newer driverdriver.c
 updated to work like clang works.
