The OS that's running those systems do ship those ancient compilers.
Luckily for us, almost all Supercomputers I work on, do have newer compiler
versions installed via a modules environment. If you are required to use
gcc 4.x, you problem have more pressing issues than Boost 1.7x doesn't
officially support C++03 anymore. And maybe, you can't even use C++ in
those scenarios
