Debian linux has pre-build boost packages! So if you just want to
_use_ boost, then you can just install one or more of:

Package: libboost-dev
Package: libboost-examples
Package: libboost-regex1.27
Package: libboost-regex-dev
Package: libboost-python1.27
Package: libboost-python-dev
Package: libboost-graph1.27
Package: libboost-graph-dev

If you are using "unstable" (aka "sid"), then it is a simple
matter of "apt-get install ...". If you are using "testing"
(aka "woody"), then you can use the packages, but you'll have
to get them by hand from If you're using
"stable" (aka "potato"), you are probably out of luck.
