the attachment contains the diagnostic.

I also (tried to) patch so that it accepts a directory
from where the boost installation can be copied (instead of downloading
it). So now I define a proxy which is actually a path, if the proxy does
not contain "http", the script will copytree the boost instead of
download it. I is not a high-quality patch but my python still needs a
lot of improving and it does what I currently need.
