I just tried to download the 1.34.1 zip from Sourceforge from my
behind my corporate firewall. That firewall is of the extremely
zealous type and as part of its virus scan of zip files it checks that
the "content of the file matches the content type". This check fails
for at least one file in the boost archive, and this has the effect
that I am prevented from downloading any of the zip file. Here is all
the information I have about the failure:

> The transferred file

In my view there is a bug somewhere along the line (boost sources,
sourceforge, my corporation's firewall software/policies) so I am
posting this message here in case boost developers can help.
