As I recall, he's using "Linux from Scratch" which is why he needs to
build all of boost to get the parts he needs.

Everyone's distro is a matter of choice, of course, and I feel some
affinity for the folks who still want that control over the OS (seeing
as I go back to the Yggdrasil days and used Gentoo extensively at one 
time), but for audio work, I can't see any benefit these days to rolling
my own, especially when it comes to realtime kernels.  I'm a huge fan
of Planet CCRMA's Redhat-based distro for audio work now, and have never
had a problem building any of the versions of Ardour that wasn't quickly
and easily solved.
