Darwin pbg4.local 8.11.0 Darwin Kernel Version 8.11.0: Wed Oct 10 18:26:00 PDT 
2007; root:xnu-792.24.17~1/RELEASE_PPC Power Macintosh powerpc
Could not build devel-boost using powerpc-apple-darwin8-gcc-4.0.1

Was able to build on Intel Mac OS X 10.5.6

cd meta-pkgs/boost

Solution was:

 // Darwin's rather strange "double double" is rather hard to
 // support, it should be possible given enough effort though...
 #if defined(unix) && defined(__INTEL_COMPILER) && (__INTEL_COMPILER <= 1000)

Problem is boost believes Macs don't know "long double".  Solution found using 
Google where the error message causing the build to fail was reported for other 
architectures and pointed towards trying this.  Boost-libs built, but haven't 
tested yet.
