=> perhaps you have a too old version of boost. Anyway most boost
related issues can be solved using the --with-boost-libs=-lboost_system
configure parameter. If it is not enough please give the boost version
(it should be in config.report and displayed at the end of the configure

PS: what is the equivalent version of OpenSUSE? Some of us have OpenSUSE VMs
(not SLES as it is not really free) where we can check. BTW Kea 1.2 will
require a C++11 compiler so anyway it should be a good idea to check,
and not only there is no SUSE VM on our build farm but I don't know
if there is a plan to add one...
