Boost :

I've been trying to build boost on an amd64 machine under Debian Linux
but it hangs trying to compile part of the wave library. Is it possible
to skip building the wave library as a temporary work around (I am not
familiar with jam)?

I'm using the deb source package (from 1.33.0) from the unstable Debian

I am building on the stable distribution (i.e. trying to create a back
port because of the broken timed mutexes in 1.32).

The build gets to:

    "g++" -c -Wall -ftemplate-depth-255 -D_REENTRANT -g -O0
-fno-inline -pthread -I"bin/boost/libs/wave/build"
-I"/home/users/russell/cvs/debPackages/boost/boost_1_33_0" -I
"/home/users/russell/cvs/debPackages/boost/boost_1_33_0" -o
    "/usr/bin/objcopy" --set-section-flags .debug_str=contents,debug

at which point it hangs (top shows cc1plus using 99.9% CPU). Please let
me know if I can supply more info to help debug this problem.
