"Boost 1.41 Uplift

The new feature brings 1.41.0 of Boost to Fedora 13 along with BoostMPI.
Boost would be built with CMake. The upgrade would allow bi-annual
opportunistic syncing with upstream sources. The Boost development
community is exploring alternate build and source code control
approaches. It includes the use of more standard build and release
management tools such as git and CMake.

The new way to build Boost allows two enhancements when compared to the
current build system

     * Create some more libraries such as Boost MPI
     * Stay synchronized with the latest Boost versions more easily

Sync with upstream would keep Fedora updated."
