There is no libs/thread/src/pthread/once.hpp file as far as I can see. The
boost/thread/pthread/once.hpp file is no longer needed and can be removed (as
well as boost/thread/win32/once.hpp when win32 version is implemented). The
complete public code is platform-independent and resides in
boost/thread/once.hpp after the patch is applied.
