UHD Utils and Boost

Hi Craig,

We recommend to use Ubuntu 10.04 or 12.04, as these are what we're
using here for all the development and testing. E.g. we recently
discovered that OpenBTS is unstable on some older versions of Fedora,
while it is very stable on aforementioned Ubuntu. We're yet to find
the reason for this.

In this particular case I recommend you to upgrade to a decent Boost
version. On my Ubuntu 12.04 I use Boost 1.48 and it works fine.
