after a quick look at configure.ac, it looks like being due to the lack
of "boost/libs/filesystem/src/exception.cpp". Given #406883 and
boost/1.34.0-1, these cpp files moved to the documentation package,
under the HTML/ directory:
| $ apt-file search filesystem/src/exception.cpp
| libboost-doc: usr/share/doc/libboost-doc/HTML/libs/filesystem/src/exception.cpp

Debian Boost Team, is it intentional? Is one supposed to detect the
boost libraries and so on in a very different way?

Just trying to figure out, thanks in advance for any pointer.
