[arch-general] PowerDNS has new dependencies

When looking at the output from ./configure --help, there is no
mention of boost at all.
However, even after removing --with-boost, ./configure insists that it
should look for boost, and fails with this message:

./configure: line 16421: syntax error near unexpected token `1.34'
./configure: line 16421: `BOOST_REQUIRE(1.34)'

Which version of pdns were you building and which version of boost do
you have installed?

If upstream insists that boost should be a dependency for pdns, it
would not be The Arch Way to disable it, even if it can be argued that
the library is more advanced than strictly needed.

Please report this as a bug or feature request to the pdns developers
if you think that they should change their ways and not depend on
boost by default.
