- 3.4.5 had a build fix for boost 1.48, before it didn't build anymore
  (see http://bugs.debian.org/652784 and the mentioned fdo bug) 
- you missed http://bugs.debian.org/652681 because you tried it after
  the fixed version entered testing :-)

But it's normal that the internal copy of LO is outdated. See also icu :-)
(Or nss, which might let all distros run into a bug which noone using internal
nss has...)
