[blfs-dev] LO- boost problem.

I cannot build libreoffice- with boost_1_59 (LFS as at 1st
September, BLFS as at 2nd September), it fails with:

[build LNK] Library/libucbhelper.so
In function `_GLOBAL__sub_I_pdfparse.cxx':
pdfparse.cxx:(.text.startup+0x2b): undefined reference to
pdfparse.cxx:(.text.startup+0x30): undefined reference to

Makefile:247: recipe for target 'build' failed
make: *** [build] Error 2

Google found various links over the years, all of which told me this
is a problem with libboost_system.  My first guess was that perhaps
something had caused it to not find the shared lib (although the
message implies otherwise), so I tried making the static lib
available, but that did not alter it.

For libboost_system I now have:

ken at jtm1 /sources/scripts/lfs-dev/git $ls -l /usr/lib/libboost_system.*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47846 Sep  6 00:54 /usr/lib/libboost_system.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    25 Sep  6 00:54 /usr/lib/libboost_system.so -> libboost_system.so.1.59.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 17000 Sep  6 00:54 /usr/lib/libboost_system.so.1.59.0

It takes about an hour and a half to get to this point, with my
(multilingual) config on this machine.  Any suggestions, please ?
