Hi everyone,

In order to keep LFS/BLFS the major source of concise building instructions.

Boost.IOStreams optionally requires zlib and libbz2.
Alternatively you can use
./bjam -sNO_ZLIB=1 -sNO_BZIP2=1
Otherwise compiling IOStreams fails.
That's better explained at

Also, Boost doesn't seem to create libboost.{so,a} (by default at least).
It's more like libboost_*.{so,a}

Best regards,
