Just a quick follow-up to my situation. I went ahead and did this --
downloaded the source and did a local installation. While compiling
wasn't perfect -- the error I got was "failed updating 69 targets,
skipped 18 targets" -- but 7857 targets percentage-wise,
it's ok. :-) Most importantly, I did this to get Boost.MPI working.
So, I tried the test program in the Boost.MPI tutorial and it worked fine.

So, it seems [for me, anyway], this was a reasonable option compared to
wrestling with the Debian package which I might go back to some day, but
right now, I don't know enough to fix that.

Big thank you for your help! Your message gave me the motivation to
look into this alternative [of downloading from source and installing]...
