I was installing boost today using the brew keg, which shows it’s for the latest version, 1.55.0, but I kept running into errors.
In the case of #1, it kept puking every time it tried to grab boost from svn.
In the case of #2, no matter what I did, including this option kept giving a warning about Python support soon to be deprecated. And yes, I tried the
option. It just wasn’t happening.
I don’t know if it’s a problem with the keg, or a probem with this particular build of Boost. Finally, I was successfully able to get things to build using:
brew install boost --c++11 --with-icu \ --without-python --without-single
