I believe my package schroot may have been hit by a 1.46 issue that is fixed in 

Is there a plan to update to 1.47 or backport the fixes?

From the 1.47 changelog:

Doc fixes: Update release history, add tables of macros and deprecated names.
Bug fix: convenience.hpp didn't fully apply BOOST_FILESYSTEM_NO_DEPRECATED to 
name changes.
Bug fix: Ticket #1972 'remove' fixes.
Bug fix: Restore deprecated basic_directory_entry names inadvertently removed.
Bug fix: Provide deprecated functions has_branch_path and has_leaf, 
inadvertently omitted from 1.36.0
Add workarounds for Codegear/Borland C++ Builder 2009.

From In member function 'void 
sbuild::chroot_config::add_config_directory(const string&, const string&)': error: 'class 
boost::filesystem3::directory_entry' has no member named 'leaf'
