I Have finally managed to get Boost to install after copious amounts of time
spent. As a bit of a newbie to Boost I was totally lost. At the point of
>bjam install I would get a heap of errors. after having to ctrl-c to stop
the scrolling text to find what was causing it. I found there was a problem
with bzip2.

Running on Debian with Bzip installed I thought it should be working. but
NO, it wasn't. Apparently it was missing a file bzlib.h which comes with
bzip2-devel. that that is not at all obvious when looking at the errors. I
checked it out to find that it was actually installed. so I removed it and
installed it again. It came up with a dependency that was not installed.

Now it works.

Hope that helps anyone else in the future cause it sure was a pain for me.
