Just a note that 1.49 has been released.

Regarding the exp-run results and this comment
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=ports/156253#reply7 -  I think that the
number of the failing ports is sufficiently small and the current boost version is
sufficiently outdated to justify breaking those ports and putting onus on their
maintainers and upstreams.

I suspect that in some case just updating the ports to the latest upstreams could
fix the problems.

This bug report seems to describe the same issue and has fixes:

Googling for <error: 'boost::BOOST_FOREACH' has not been declared> provides a
number of recipes for a fix - the problem seems to be universally caused by
#define foreach BOOST_FOREACH somewhere in (non-boost) source code.

Again google helps (<Parse error at "BOOST_JOIN">):

Every problem seems to have a solution already.  We are not the first to use newer
boost :-)
But it's unreasonable to expect that a single person should fix all the problems
in advance.  The task should be parallelized among maintainers of the dependent
ports (and their users with hacking skills).
