As far as I know you don't need any boost installed for ardour. For one 
because boost is so big, ardour ships the headers it needs. For the second, 
ardour ships most of the libs it needs to be sure that the right versions are 
present. You won't even get support if they catch you building ardour with 
the systems libraries...

As long as scons is not complaining about missing libs/headers, the only thing 
you need to have installed is a running gcc with glibc and jack. And the only 
build options you should be interested in are DEBUG and PREFIX.
