It did succeed for me, but it took about 4.5GB and about 10 seconds to
BTW, there are two libraries in Boost.Log: libboost_log.so and
libboost_log_setup.so (the latter is not mentioned in .pc). They have
different dependencies, so if there were two separate .pc files, the
list of dependencies could be shorter. But I suspect extracting that
information from Boost.Build won't be easy.
