But there's only one glibc, which they all use. Different glibc versions
shouldn't be _too_ different, for Boost's purposes. No more different
than windows NT, 95, 98, 2k etc. for instance. So just pick one, it
shouldn't matter which. A distro that doesn't ship with Boost might make
sense, since presumably the distros that provide precompiled versions of
Boost are already testing it.


There are only 10 types of people in the world -
Those who understand binary, and those who don't.
