because boost is rather a collection of template and utilities.
Only a few components are actually a true library. And they appears to
have a bit of instability about handling dependencies since 1.40 (it's a
bit complex, and they rename some libraries too... and move components)
The sad part: povray actually need to use the part of boost which are in
The nice part: if povray move to C++11 (not expecting retrocompatibility
with old C++03 or older C++98), the thread is now part of the standard,
and that part of boost might be dropped.
But that's a major break with platforms not providing C++11.
Just because nobody complains does not mean all parachutes are perfect.
