Ok, finally got to try this a bit. Minor bad news, your patch to
devel/boost-pyste no longer applies. More bad news, the new boost libs
have "issues."

I maintain 2 ports that use them, libtorrent-rasterbar and qbittorrent.
 So I first tried building your new versions of boost-jam and boost-libs
... no problems there. Then I ran my existing qbittorrent binary which
was compiled against 1.45, so far so good. The problems came when I
rebuilt those 2 against the new boost libs. qbittorrrent starts up Ok,
but then it ends up freezing solid, needing to be killed. On the console
I get a whole bunch of these:

WARNING pid 86327 (qbittorrent): ioctl sign-extension ioctl ffffffff8004667e

This is on recent 9-current amd64. The only boost OPTION I have enabled
is the one for optimized cflags.
