Strictly from a Boost user's perspective, the Context (and therefore
Coroutine, ASIO) build problem is a pretty serious one. gcc-4.8.x /
C++11 is a pretty mainstream configuration nowadays. At the very least,
the publishing of a patch file on as has been done in the past
would be appreciated in order to enable building with this compiler
