Comment (by Guymer):

 Thank you very much for investigating that Ken, I had just assumed that
 "boost171" was not building for the same reason as the open ticket about
 "boost171" failing to build, rather than due to something different. I did
 not check to see ''why'' my build was failing to make sure that it was the
 same as that ticket, I apologise for that. As I see it, there are two
 possible ways forward to obtain "source-highlight" on a Python 3.11-only

 1. build "source-highlight" with "boost176" instead (this ticket)
 2. fix "boost171" to work with "+python311" (ticket:67090)

 I prefer the first option, as it will result in fewer Boost libraries
 being installed on my machine, and you say that "boost176" is the default
 Boost currently.
