When building pdns, it fails, because it does not recognize boost 1.50.0.
After searching through /usr/lib with objdump, these are the libraries
that had the symbols needed to make pdns build:
-lboost_graph_parallel -lboost_serialization -lboost_program_options

Here is the bug report for pdns: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/32492
And the upstream bug report: http://wiki.powerdns.com/trac/ticket/612

If you don't think the current way pdns is being built is right, what
do you suggest?
