Yes, I used the python script somewhere from pkg-boost's svn and
generated boost-defaults package against 1.53.0-2. Then I pre-installed
& pinned boost1.53-all (to make sure that boost1.49 does not sneak into
chroots and instead builds fail if they try to install 1.49).

I never understood "-mt" =)))) so yeah, I'd love for that to be gone.

Also spotted that my sbuild was not considering alternate build-depends
(novice mistake =) ). So a few improvements here and there.
