Subject: [Boost-build] Boost Library build failure

I am connecting to an AMD64 server with Debian 6.0.6 installed on it.

$ cat /proc/version
Linux version (root_at_womb) (gcc version 4.3.2
(Debian 4.3.2-1.1) ) #8 SMP Mon Oct 10 13:33:17 PDT 2011

Please note gcc version 4.3.2 vs the gcc version 4.4.5 used to build.

I intend to install boost libraries in my userspace.

So I follow the steps like:

$ wget $BOOST_URL # Step 1
$ tar -xjf $BOOST_BZ2_BALL # Step 2
$ cd $BOOST_SRC # Step 3
$ ./ --with-icu=$ICU_PATH --prefix=$BOOST_PATH \
                                                # Step 4
$ ./b2 install --build-dir=$BOOST_BUILD_DIR --without-mpi | \
        tee $BOOST_BUILD_LOG # Step 5

To be noted. After Step 3, I corrected the coroutine typo in
1_54_0/libs/coroutine/build/Jamfile.v2 and manually implemented the

The build log file and the list of installed files are as attached.

The issue is many a number of errors, similar to this:
---- ----
g++: Internal error: Killed (program cc1plus)
Please submit a full bug report.
See <file:///usr/share/doc/gcc-4.4/README.Bugs> for instructions.
---- ----

The build process ends with this message:
---- ----
...failed updating 269 targets...
...skipped 54 targets...
...updated 759 targets...
---- ----

How to check whether my boost library is installed fine? How severe are
the errors mentioned in this build log?
