what is todays favorite way of doing this:
(i sent this question to submitter):

his reply is this:

"The ChangeLog mentioned some sparc64 fixes, so it's worth giving it a
try again, but the port depends on boost-libs now which is marked as
broken on sparc64, so it cannot actually be tested."

So, how do you want me to handle this?

NOT_FOR_ARCHS sparc64?

or just let PH die trying to include boost-libs?
