Please attach the entire build log to this bug report.

build log as requesting in #1
Comment 3 Thomas Beutin 2013-02-20 15:12:07 UTC
actually the build.log is from another system (with all of the portage stuff in standard locations) but the error is the same.
the interesting part of the build.log was already given in the bug description.
Comment 4 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-03-03 11:03:07 UTC
This might be fixed with boost-1.52.0-r6 — please try that and report, thanks!

The problem still exists. I'll attach a build.log.

sorry for re-reporting - i'm too confused this weekend....
Comment 10 Tiziano Müller (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-04-09 15:43:47 UTC
Why do we want a 'threads' USE flag for boost again at all?
Comment 11 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2013-08-27 09:49:36 UTC
Problem still exists in 1.54.0? It seems, that suggested allocator variants does not work in shared build in non-threading implementation? Cause we do not do ONLY static boost builds, maybe we should just drop 'threads' USE-flag?
Comment 12 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2013-08-27 09:50:07 UTC
Sorry, just to clarify, there is no '?' in first sentence in previous comment
Comment 13 Julian Ospald 2013-09-25 13:23:31 UTC
same here with 1.53.0

boost-1.52.0-non-threaded.patch for USE="-threads"

Using this patch i can upgrade my system from dev-libs/boost-1.49.0-r2 to dev-libs/boost-1.52.0-r using the following patch for the ebuild:

 	# Avoid a patch for now

An "emerge @preserved-rebuild" runs fine afterwards, and any other package which depends on dev-libs/boost on my system compiles fine as well.

But i've no clue if this works on a USE="threads" system...
Comment 15 Andrew Savchenko gentoo-dev 2013-12-30 19:58:18 UTC
Patch works fine here with boost-1.53.0-r1.
Comment 16 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2014-01-02 10:54:49 UTC
why is this marked as a blocker of 467256 ?  the OP reported seeing this against glibc-2.15 which means stabilizing 2.16 is not a regression.

Calculating dependencies... done!

Total: 0 packages, Size of downloads: 0 kB

WARNING: One or more updates have been skipped due to a dependency conflict:


  (sys-libs/glibc-2.16.0::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) conflicts with
    <sys-libs/glibc-2.16 required by (dev-libs/boost-1.49.0-r2::gentoo, installed)

 * IMPORTANT: 10 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
 * Use eselect news to read news items.

As long as dev-libs/boost is not fixed on a non-threaded system i cannot install sys-libs/glibc-2.16. IMHO this is a blocker.
(And what is "OP"?)

All arches have at least boost-1.52.0-r7 for now in stable, thus - this issue is fixed
