The system library has been in boost since version 1.35.0, and using it was optional. Now other boost libraries depend on it, so it's now required. Since it has been around since 1.35.0, it should be safe to make this a required library. As I had additional boost changes in a branch, libchrono is now also required as of 1.47.0 because of dependencies. Needed this library is now version dependent. This modified patch is committed as of #9a5c31b.

Against which boost version are you linking?

In order for Gnash to build properly (with newer Boost libs, I think), the Boost "system" library is required. This is a patch to add "system" to the list of required libraries in boost.m4.
