Well... it worked with old revision of boost... then they broke it (the
linkage is no more done by boost)... it broke around 1.47 or 1.48, IIRC.

Boost have their own motivation (including: to allow someone, despite
the default being to use native thread, to use their own thread... or
its own system for the thread...).

For the configure script of povray: well, lack of manpower, lack of
competence, and it appears past the release date of povray
(when it was tested at that time, boost was still fine).

Povray is now in github, so if you feel to make a patch, well, go for
it: make a fork, make the correction and create the pull request on the
official branch.
