You're probably missing essential information, starting with your CentOS version, what you downloaded exactly and what steps you performed. Also, your question might be better suited for Stack Overflow if it pertains to software tools generally used by programmers such as Boost. –  slhck Oct 15 '12 at 20:33

Rather than screwing your system, pay a visit to http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/RebuildSRPM , download the src.rpm for boost from Centos 6 ( if you are on CentOS 5) or from Fedora 17 (if you are on CentOS 6) and rebuild the package.
