Hi bapt,

There is a PR to fix building boost-libs on non-x86 platforms that is
not in the 1.55.x release branch, that I have tested and is ready to commit:


I have additionally re-opened the upstream issue and pinged upstream on
IRC about the merge back to the release branch.

Would you prefer a) I commit now and you merge a one line change to a
single source file into your CFT patch, or b) something else ?
