That'd be a different bug, also worth filing if confirmed.

rsavoye says it's already installed. Anything wrong in detection?

Maybe it's not really needed, at least this is what configure.ac says about it:

dnl check for missing libraries and disable them.
if test x"$BOOST_LIBS" != x; then
  if test x"${cygnal_missing_libs}" != x; then
    for i in ${cygnal_missing_libs}; do
      if test $i = serialization; then
        AC_DEFINE([BOOST_MULTI_INDEX_DISABLE_SERIALIZATION], ["1"], [if the library is missing, don't use it.])

Anyway, the problem is that ERROR is printed to filedescriptor 4 rather than 3... as if it was a warning. If it's just a warning it should be reworded.

Following build reports one error but it returns 0.


          ERROR: The BOOST serialization library is required for cygnal!
                 Either configure with --disable-cygnal or
                 install it from http://www.boost.org
                 or .deb users: apt-get install libboost-serialization-dev
