Hey Alexander,
You committed x64 Boost libs for msvc 2010 a few days ago. But they are 
not used from within cmake/scons yet?!

People report issues with it on the mailing list and in forums.

There are two possibilities, as we officially don't support vs2010 from 
our side:
1) Please fix the issues, and maintain the libs.
2) Remove them from SVN again. Our libs in svn are there to build 
blender (especially for release), if there are (experimental) libs which 
can be only used with tweaking or not work at all, they can be provided 
via a third party website as zip archive or whatever as well.

I don't mind libs in svn for mingw or msvc2010 (again, they are not used 
for official releases) but if they are in svn, they should work and not 
just waste huge amounts of space.
