The situation is the same as before for anyone, meaning that by default boost
will be linked against the libstdc++ from base on 8 and 9 and libc++ on 10 and
11, that means that you can mix with ports with the exact same risk as you have
now :)

that just changes compilation dependencies not runtime one.

I hope that does answer your question :)
