The branch that includes the boost changes is not merged yet. I still can't build synfigstudio (I can build core) it in Mac 10.8 or Ubuntu 12.04. I have emailed to Diego to fix it.
If you want to test, please clone and build the following branch:https://github.com/genete/synfig.git
That branch is the current origin/master plus two commits:
The first adds the proper configuration changes to make possible build against boost libraries (makefile.am and configure.ac) and adds to m4 macros to find the boost libraries.
The second is a replacement of the m4 macros with two newer versions I need to be possible to build in Mac.
In Mac and in Linux I can build synfig-core but synfigstudio complains. In Mac it tells me that synfig >=0.63.05 is not installed and in Linux it complains about it doesn't find a synfig header form the synfig-core includes. The file exists but the searching path is wrong.
The summary for the synfigstudio configuration in linux is that the $SYNFIG_CFLAGS and $SYNFIG_LIBS are empty, what means that something wrong has happened during previous core build and installation.
Minimum boost version is 1.32.0 as you can see in Diego's commit.
