At least Debian and SuSE do.

boost is very nice. It provides stuff which will be in the next C++
standard or things we already use i.e. shared_ptr or real C++
signals/slots (without any moc). But I didn't try boost with QTL
(neither Qt3 nor Qt4). If boost doesn't work with Qt much of it would
be worthless for us.
