[pkg-boost-devel] Bug#378016: boost: Typos in source

Package: boost
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

The source code and documentation spells "referred" as "refered" and
"preferred" and "prefered".  This is not correct English, and is not
found in either British or American dictionaries.  This is included
in e.g. boost::program_options error messages, and does not look
very good.  It's also used in type and variable names.

I have attached patches against the current unstable sources and
upstream CVS.  Please could you forward upstream?
