Description JINMEI Tatuya 2012-12-27 22:20:00 UTC
The change to the boost-lib port introduced in
caused other regression.  For example, see this:

I confirmed this behavior with FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE (i386) and
boost-libs-1.48.0_1 and g++ (GCC) 4.2.2 20070831 prerelease [FreeBSD].

It can more easily be confirmed by compiling this code:
#include <boost/numeric/conversion/cast.hpp>

#include <stdint.h>

main() {
    return (boost::numeric_cast<uint16_t>(0));

as follows: g++ -Werror -I/usr/local/include -c testcode.cc

It was also discussed with the boost developers:
(see also https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/4669)
and, as discussed there, it seems the change to the port is not the
right solution.

For that matter, I just confirmed I can successfully build
libtorrent-rasterbar-15-python even suppressing the corresponding
change in /usr/local/include/boost/config/compiler/gcc.hpp by hand.

So, I now propose reverting the change.  It seems it suffices if we
can simply remove
