I am a new fdo user and i tryed to compile fdo-3.3.1 under linux ubuntu 
hardy this morning. Here is the errors i've got:

build_thirdparty.sh :

Segmentation fault      ./tools/jam/src/bin.linuxx86/bjam toolset=gcc 
variant=release threading=multi ...
I didn't see this error at the first built. and i tryed to build fdo... 
here is what i've got:

*** No rule to make target  
`OpenSource_FDO/Thirdparty/boost/stage/lib/libboost_thread-mt.a', needed 
by `libFdoOws.la'.  Stop .... that's normal, boost is not build

The solution:

After a moment, I found this bug/patch: 

Apply this small patch in 
"Opensource_FDO/Thirdparty/boost/tools/jam/src/" and recompile bjam with 
the "build.sh" script (same directory). Re-run the build_thirdparty.sh 
script and all will be ok and you'll have a boost built.

Hope this can help some users.
