I recently downloaded the source for Boost 1.33.0 and tried to compile and
install it, but I hit a problem when compiling Boost.Wave: the compilation
time for the file $BOOST_ROOT/libs/wave/src/instantiate_cpp_literalgrs.cpp
seems to take forever (after 4 days, the compiler was still running hard,
no output). Is that normal? It is mentioned in the documentation that
without separate compilation, compiling a program using Boost.Wave can
take up to an hour (depending on your system configuration), so I guess
compiling the library could take a long time as well, but days!?!

For reference, here is my compilation command:

bjam --prefix=$SOMEWHERE --builddir=build --with-python-root=/usr \
     "-sTOOLS=gcc" "-sBUILD=release <optimization>speed \
     <runtime-link>dynamic <threading>multi" \
     "-sPYTHON_VERSION=2.3" install

The platform is x86_64 running GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.10-1.771_FC2 (from
Fedora Core 2). Compiler version is g++ (GCC) 3.3.3 20040412 (Red Hat
Linux 3.3.3-7).
