Well, yeah, it is a change.  The regression here is that your package
stopped building.  This could well be caused by a bug in boost, or
perhaps the API just changed.  It's hard to tell with boost.  If you
open a bug agains boost for such things, I'll look at it and typically
will come up with a patch that either fixes the package, or boost.

But don't hold your breath, it was wontfix'd, as expected.
