#11868: cannot build Boost using PGI compilers
 Reporter: anonymous | Type: Bugs
   Status: new | Milestone: To Be Determined
Component: Building Boost | Version: Boost 1.60.0
 Severity: Showstopper | Keywords:
 Trying to build actual Boost release 1.60.0 using PGI compilers (15.10-0
 64-bit) we ran into two ICEs in the 'pgCC' compiler.

 Asking the PGU support, we got:
> 15.10 is the last release of pgCC/pgcpp.
> pgc++ will be the only PGI C++ compiler for the coming years.

 Huh, but 'pgCC' is hard-coded in
 'boost_1_60_0/tools/build/src/tools/pgi.jam' file (line 28):
> local l_command = [ common.get-invocation-command pgi : pgCC :
 $(command) ] ;

 Trying to change out 'pgCC' by 'pgc++' we got dozens of errors like this:
> pgi.compile.c++ bin.v2/libs/math/build/pgi/release/threading-
> "pgc++" -Kieee -fpic -fPIC -fast -Mx,8,0x10000000 -Minform=warn

 ... well, 'pgc++' is not 'pgCC'.

 Bottom line:
 - Boost cannot be build with PGI compilers;
 - Boost need an update to new PGI C++ copiler (if you wish to proceed to
 support PGI at all).

 Merry Christmas!
