Tried to build boost_1_32_0 on OSX today, but the build process brought
the machine to trashing, as cc1plus ended up using all available
memory. The problem seems related to
libs/serialization - removing it made the rest of boost build almost OK.

Here are the details:

Mac OS X 10.3.7, with gcc version 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc.
build 1666)
Lots of programs from fink installed to /sw
Lots of programs from opendarwin installed to /opt

1. port install boost-jam (3.1.10)
2. Downloaded boost_1_32_0.tar.bz2 from boost.org and unpacked
3. bjam -sTOOLS=darwin stage
4. Start top in another terminal
5. Wait some hours until your hard drive starts to make crazy noises
6. Last bjam output will be:

darwin-C++-action
bin/boost/libs/serialization/build/libboost_serialization.a/darwin/
release/xml_grammar.o

Top will show something like:

rm -rf libs/serialization to avoid problem. But I guess some people
actually need those xml-grammars..
