Expect rebuilds. It's in the FAQ:

  How can the Boost libraries be used successfully for important projects?
  Many of the Boost libraries are actively maintained and improved, so
backward compatibility
with prior version isn't always possible. Deal with this by freezing the
version of the Boost
libraries used by your project. Only upgrade at points in your project's
life cycle where a bit
of change will not cause problems. Individual bug fixes can always be
obtained from the 
CVS repository.
