Problems in Boost still cause aptitude to FTBFS with gcc-4.8.  New
point release to be made available once these blocking bugs are fixed:

- <http://bugs.debian.org/710210> in libboost1.53-dev
- <http://bugs.debian.org/710211> in libboost1.49-dev

There is a similar issue with google-mock and gcc-4.8.  If needed that
part of the test suite can be temporarily disabled to avoid holding up
the transitions.
