Thanks, this is actually the approach I ended up using. In fact, it
was the approach I tried first, but then it turned out that the
program I was trying to link to boost didn't work properly with the
version of GCC 4 that shipped with OS X 10.4 (which was based on a
prerelease version of GCC 4). Since I didn't want to recompile all of
darwinports with GCC 3.3, I decided to see if I could compile just
boost and the program that would be using it with GCC 3.3. Apple
finally released an updated GCC 4, based on the stable release of GCC
4, which works, so I ended up just using that with the boost from

Thanks for all of the suggestions,
