Build Boost 1.55.0 for iOS 7 and OS X including 64 Bit

# Builds a Boost framework for the iPhone.
# Creates a set of universal libraries that can be used on an iPhone and in the
# iPhone simulator. Then creates a pseudo-framework to make using boost in Xcode
# less painful.
#
# To configure the script, define:
# BOOST_LIBS: which libraries to build
# IPHONE_SDKVERSION: iPhone SDK version (e.g. 5.1)
#
# Then go get the source tar.bz of the boost you want to build, shove it in the
# same directory as this script, and run "./boost.sh". Grab a cuppa. And voila.

Thanks, Great job!

I have a question here, I want to put all sources within the project and build them as an iOS archive. any idea?

Thank you for this script, it helps a lot. The only thing is for some reason it doesn't build thread library for i386 (simulator). All other architectures are fine. Could you please help with this issue?

I was unable to build for the iPhoneSimulator using this script. I kept getting an error saying:

-ftemplate-depth-128 command not found

After MUCH trial and error, I finally discovered that the problem was the user-config.jam that is generated in the updateBoost() method. The fix for me was to change the configuration for the simulator from this:

using darwin : ${IPHONE_SDKVERSION}~iphonesim
: $XCODE_ROOT/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/$COMPILER -arch i386 -arch x86_64 -fvisibility=hidden -fvisibility-inlines-hidden $EXTRA_CPPFLAGS
: $XCODE_ROOT/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer
: x86 iphone

to this:

using darwin : ${IPHONE_SDKVERSION}~iphonesim
: g++ -arch i386 -arch x86_64 -fvisibility=hidden -fvisibility-inlines-hidden $EXTRA_CPPFLAGS
: $XCODE_ROOT/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer
: x86 iphone

Here's why this works (at least on my system).

clang++ --version outputs the following:
Apple LLVM version 5.1 (clang-503.0.40) (based on LLVM 3.4svn)
Target: x86_64-apple-darwin13.2.0
Thread model: posix

while g++ --version gives this:
Configured with: --prefix=/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr --with-gxx-include-dir=/usr/include/c++/4.2.1
Apple LLVM version 5.1 (clang-503.0.40) (based on LLVM 3.4svn)
Target: x86_64-apple-darwin13.2.0
Thread model: posix

Seems that in order to build for the simulator, that --with-gxx-include-dir flag is important.

There's probably a different way to go about that, but this is what I did to get it working, at least on my system.

Since this is obviously not getting updated, here's a link to a gist I created that actually DOES build boost for all current versions iOS, iOS Simulator, and OSX:
