After looking at the "config.log" file, figured out it was looking for "libboost_unit_test_framework_gcc42.so" so I made a soft link in the "usr/local/lib" directory with that name pointing to the "libboost_unit_test_framework.so.1.55.0" file. Libopenraw compiled fine after that.

I've not used it in some time but libmap.conf comes to mind as the
tool I have used instead of making symlinks for libraries.

I took a different approach.  I found the dependency chain:

  graphics/gimp --> graphics/gegl --> graphics/libopenraw

Gimp was the only port that used libopenraw and I don't use gimp for manipulating camera images.

My temporary work around was to remove the OPTION for openraw in
graphics/gegl.  It was necessary to rebuild gegl and gimp to satisfy
pkg_libchk.  Now the trick will be to remember that I did this if
I happened to need to use camera RAW images at some point.
