I wanted to test some experimental features of Boost Spirit X3, so I tried
to install Boost from the "Modular Boost" Git repository, but without

I followed the instructions on and the b2 command

I tried adding optimization=speed on the command line, but it didn't
changed a thing. I tried the master and develop branches.
