This won't even install the BuildRequires, it fails with an error

Error: Package: 4:texlive-pdftex-bin-svn30845.0-11.20140525_r34255.fc23.1.x86_64 (build)
Error: Package: 4:texlive-luatex-bin-svn31084.0-11.20140525_r34255.fc23.1.x86_64 (build)

Doesn't look related to Boost.

>> blobby

blobby needs this patch to build:

(I've sent the patch to one of the upstream project maintainers).

But it still fails anyway with:

/usr/bin/ld: CMakeFiles/blobby.dir/BlobbyDebug.cpp.o: relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.bss' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
CMakeFiles/blobby.dir/BlobbyDebug.cpp.o: error adding symbols: Bad value

which doesn't seem to be a Boost problem.

Another BuildRequires failure with

/builddir/build/BUILD/elektra-0.8.7/src/bindings/swig/python3/kdb.i:77: Error: Unknown SWIG preprocessor directive: TODO (if this is a block of target language code, delimit it with %{ and %})
src/bindings/swig/python3/CMakeFiles/_swig-python3.dir/build.make:64: recipe for target 'src/bindings/swig/python3/kdbPYTHON_wrap.cxx' failed

Probably not Boost related.

>> fityk

Not Boost related:

app.cpp:12:2: error: #error "Not everything is working with wxGTK3.  Use default wxGTK instead, " "based on GTK+2. If you want to test it, just remove this #error."

>> flamerobin

This looks like a Boost problem:

configure: error: invalid value: boost_major_version=

But actually it's caused by a GCC change that puts a # preprocessor
marker before macro expansions:

boost-lib-version = 
# 2 "/tmp/conftest.cpp" 3 4

The configure script needs to use -P as described at

>> inkscape

Fails due to a glibmm problem, see adamw's email in this thread.

>> scantailor

This has some weird CMake error about being unable to figure out how
to use -pthread.

>> xmlcopyeditor

This fails with a "recompile with -fPIC" error that doesn't seem
related to Boost.

>> xs

This is fixed.

I'll keep checking the remaining failures, but maybe not until Monday.
