fresh devel/boost

I've seen couple of conversations in this list about updating devel/boost to the
recent version. As I understand people already have patches but the main issue is
getting all ports depending on boost to work with the new version, and testing this.

Now I am thinking - why not create a boost-devel or something like that port, or
move current boost to boost_1_34. This would immediately provide recent boot to
all and give time for dependent ports to be switched over (if needed at all).

I believe that something like the following
configure --libdir=${LOCALBASE}/lib/boost/1.38.0
should allow multiple boost versions to co-exist.
