When this was asked a few weeks ago someone then asked why
--with-bdeps Y isn't the default? This seems to burn nearly everyone
once in awhile.

When I asked a similar question, the whole bdeps thing was a red
herring. The cause in my case was ebuilds changing without having the
version increased. I guess portage uses the tree vs installed ebuild
cache depending on what you ask of it.

For example when I installed foo it did not have bar as a dep, so
--deep doesn't find it. However, the same version of foo that i have
installed now includes the dep for bar, so other commands/tools which
look at the ebuilds in the tree will see it like that (or re-emerging
foo). Maybe that's not how it works (I'm no portage expert, just a
average user).

Back to the OP's exact problem:

It looks like it wants to downgrade boost from 1.35.0-r1 down to 1.34.1.

1.35.0-r2 is testing (~arch) while 1.34.1-2 is stable. Did you
override arch when emerging?
