I've been test-building boost-libs 1.55 for the last several hours, and
it's completely unbuildable on powerpc64. It insists on using base
clang, regardless of USE_GCC setting, nor CC/CXX manual setting, but
base clang is missing some things required to build boost on powerpc.
Please fix this so that I can build with alternate compilers.
