I had hoped the author of #18 knew what he was doing, but apparently he 
didn't fully. I've thrown the change overboard again now, and 
implemented some different changes that I /think/ should be sufficient 
to fix the gentoo distro issue.

Learned a lesson today.


Please try again (both master and the hotfix branch).

Please make sure to /not/ use the LIBS="-lboost_system -lboost_thread" 
setting for the hotfix branch, as the whole point of that hotfix is to 
make configure work reliably without it.
