@wookietreiber trying editing the PKGBUILD script, and add --disable-boost at the configuration command.

Cannot compile the new version 2.4.0 because it fails to compile with the following error:

fatal error: boost/test/unit_test_suite_impl.hpp: No such file or directory
#include <boost/test/unit_test_suite_impl.hpp>

I don't know what to make of this, because this file does not exist within boost. There is a /usr/include/boost/test/unit_test_suite.hpp but this doesn't help much. Anyone got any ideas?

@masonmlai it would also help to get your compilation logs / errors in some gist / pastebin.

I just tried to reproduce and couldn't. I have boost-libs installed - just not boost:

$ pacman -Q | grep boost
boost-libs 1.60.0-2

Compilation succeeded without problems. @masonmlai do you have package boost installed additionally to boost-libs?

As far as I can tell, this is a known and not yet solved issue.

Current workarounds are either downgrade your boost version or switch to blast+-bin.

As of 2016 Mar 28, blast+ does not build with the newest version of Boost.
