This builds OK in Fedora rawhide, for x86_64 and i386. I haven't tried
other targets, nor examined test results.

When rebuilding Fedora x86_64 packages against the new Boost packages
I haven't noticed any Boost bugs.

Some failures I did notice may affect other code:

* One package was using boost::re_detail::string_out_iterator, which
fails now because the re_detail namespace was renamed to
re_detail_1_60_0. This is not a Boost bug.

* Multiple packages using Boost.Filesystem fail to compile because
they were doing:

#include <ifstream>
#include <boost/filesystem.hpp>
using namespace std;
using namespace boost::filesystem

and due to changes in the headers included in <boost/filesystem.hpp>
that makes the unqualified names "ifstream" and "ofstream" ambiguous.
This is not a Boost bug.
