ok, i've found another similar bug with gcc:4.3 compiled boost:0 and openoffice compiled with gcc:4.4, see

See for extensive tests with gcc:4.4 and boost versions in portage tree.

I tested a modified version of dev-libs/boost-1.36.0-r1 to include this patch and it builds fine with sys-devel/gcc-4.4.2. However, boost testsuite shows some problems: 249 failures with GCC 4.4.2 while "only" 159 failures with GCC 4.3.4.
Comment 5 Dirkjan Ochtman gentoo-dev 2010-03-03 13:15:56 UTC
Does this work with a more recent boost (1.41 or 1.42), or is there some specific reason you need 1.36?
Comment 6 Justin Lecher (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-03-03 16:10:56 UTC
I cannot remember why I needed that one.

please act on this, remove or fix
