Woohoo! Boost 1.51 and the related project compiles successfully with
gcc 4.6.2.

It should be noted that bootstrap.log still contains the warning:

   jam.c:653:12: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of
built-in function 'strndup' [enabled by default]

due to a missing _GNU_SOURCE define. However, that is less of a problem.

So, I will go with Boost 1.51 and gcc 4.6.2 for now ; it might be a
good idea to get to the bottom of the 4.6.0 problem, though. Possibly,
the loop/while/goto should be replaced with a while/while/break or the
compiler flagged as broken.

Please let me know if I can help with further testing.

Best regards
