The warning clearly says that libboost_date_time-gcc.so requires
libstdc++.so.5 - that means you compiled Boost with GCC 3.3
Try running "ldd /usr/local/lib/libboost_date_time-gcc.so" and see which
version of libstdc++ it requires (it will say libstdc++.so.5)
Did you build Boost before upgrading your compiler? If so, when you
re-ran "bjam install" it won't have rebuilt the libraries, it will just
have copied the libraries you had already built (with GCC 3.3) into
/usr/local/lib. If this is the case, you should delete the compiled
binaries and rebuild.
