There was a discussion on sage-devel a while ago about including the Boost headers [1]. As noted there, the latest version of the optional spkg polymake doesn't compile with the current boost package. The current boost package is called boost-cropped because it contains only a subset of the boost headers, because of package size.

This new package is contains all headers, which is still only a subset of the upstream tarball. The total packaged size is ~ 5M, which feels reasonable to me.

I've checked that the current version polybori-0.8.2 and the current upstream version polymake-2.12-rc3 both compile under Sage with these headers. I'm also submitting an spkg for polymake in another ticket.
