No, this just shows whoever did the (k)ubuntu packaging did not even 
read the build log, otherwise they would have found out that
a) no boost -dev packages were installed at all
b) that the build log (just like the one linked in LP#1111697) said
| -- Looking for C++ include boost/shared_ptr.hpp
| -- Looking for C++ include boost/shared_ptr.hpp - not found

There also was a "log feature" output missing (which would have pointed 
out a bit more clearly the lack of boost+python), and that was committed 
to master before 4.10.
