I assume it's actually boost 1.32. I am afraid this is essentially not
supported any longer.

I think if you use the same sources and run the same build command, it's unlikely
that something will start to break. I suggest you try to replicate the build
procedure you had working -- including using the same version of Boost.Build
and Boost.Jam, making sure that "bjam" is indeed the "old" version, etc.
