Update make files to work around external library issues

The make files should be modified to allow the code to build in spite of known issues in the external libraries that Kea uses. For example if we know there are versions of the boost library that have issues with warnings we should have the makefiles check for those versions of the libraries and automatically adjust if possible. In the case of the boost libraries using the configuration option --without-werror.

The desired end result is that the end user can simply build the code without needed to worry about any such items that we can work around.

Per team meeting 12 May, accept 1.1. No estimate until it's been decided what should be done.

I don't believe we can catch all cases but we can look for such setup in Jenkins but this does not seem to give reliable results. So I suggest a specific check for any BSD system. IMHO it should be added into ax_boost_for_kea.m4.

I fixed the boost issue in the 2 impacted Makefile's cf #4283.

#4283 was merged: are there still things to do in this ticket? If none close it as a duplicate.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

#4533 - which disabled -Werror unless specified on the configure command line - is a catch-all that addresses these issues.

For this reason, I'm closing this ticket.
