Your assertion that the problem is related to a new version of the database software included in the Yosemite software distribution bothers me.

It would seem to me that if there were a general problem with changes to the database software, I should have seen delays when the 15 outdated software packages were processed before processing the boost package.  I probably should have noted that it was “hung” on the deactivating step around 10 minutes before I entered the Control-C
