vegastrike-svn PKGBUILD is broken. the sources contains 3 boost versions:

ls /src/vegastrike/boost
1_28  1_35  1_45  integrating.txt

Is using 1.35 by default and for some reason it tries to link system 
boost at the final.

To fix this you have to pass at configure:

--with-boost=VERSION  Currently supported versions are 1.28,1.35, and

--with-boost=system and att boost-libs to dependency and boost to 

Have fun
