I'm not insulted. My mistake; I'm sorry, but I missed it.

I'm not going to repost my response here, but I'd hardly call it
"jumping". I simply tried to correct what was an apparent
misstatement about Boost's dependencies, and to boot I went to great
lengths to discover what your actual problem could be (as you can
guess from my post I did a grep-find for "bison" on the entire Boost
tree), and to try to diagnose it. Of course, looking at the subject
line would've been easier.

I did consider that. I admit my presumption that you were outraged
was a bit colored by your other recent ALL CAPS communications.
