I tried the 1.36 installer for Leopard and had a couple of comments:

1) there is no way to choose an install directory other than /usr/
include:/usr/lib - not a big deal, but I spent a while looking in /usr/
local first (the Boost default location)
2) the important info notice is for 1.34
3) in code using Boost.Filesystem, linking libboost_system-
gcc40-1_36.a and libboost_filesystem-gcc40-1_36.a I get the following
linker error:

Undefined symbols:
   "boost::system::error_code::message() const", referenced from:
       boost::system::system_error::what() constin main_mpi.o
std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> >,
boost::filesystem::path_traits> >::what() constin main_mpi.o
ld: symbol(s) not found

I haven't tried using the dylibs yet to see if that solves the
problem, but it's a little strange...
