My recollection is that something promised with respect to how headers 
would be changed when the boost feature moved into C++ didn't happen as
expected.

There was discussion of the issue at:

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/pull/42

and

http://news.povray.org/povray.general/thread/%3C5a233b19%241%40news.povray.org%3E/

Christoph fixed the issue while looking at:

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/issues/317

and it looks like the fix took two commits:

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/commit/1dbca0bad858f5605cc8e3a2629eb0e0dbfbb052

and

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/commit/a847cb72563f9d9d072ff2f9ef5300b91c8b5839

Perhaps you can steal from some of that work. I'm not aware of anything 
'easy,' so to speak, with respect to a fix.
