I think this is because gcc-3.4 was released after Boost-1.31 and
consequently there are a lot of changes to libstdc++3 in gcc-3.4 that don't
get auto-detected in the Boost.config system. This is fixed in current
mainline cvs, so you could try replacing boost/config/stdlib/libstdcpp3.hpp
with an updated version (attached).
