Subject: [Boost-build] [boost] [1.45][Serialization] fails to cross-compile using arm-linux-uclibc toolchain

Building boost 1.45 on Debian using arm-linux-uclibc toolchain fails to compile serialization lib, due to static assertions in basic_binary_?archive.hpp's at:

ššš BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(sizeof(tracking_type) == sizeof(bool));
ššš BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(sizeof(class_id_type) == sizeof(int_least16_t));
ššš BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(sizeof(class_id_reference_type) == sizeof(int_least16_t));

It appears to be some uclibc issue, since it builds fine using glibc toolchains.

Is it safe to simply comment out these assertions?

Thanks in advance,
