Thanks for the responses.  So contemporary SUSE-based distros appear to 
require 1.66, which is also the case for RHEL-8--based ones, while 
contemporary Debian-based distros appear to require 1.67.

I'm thus going to submit <> 
"Set Boost baseline to 1.66, and enforce it" to master once it builds 
green.  (I don't intend to backport it to libreoffice-6-3 or -6-4 
myself, but if anybody sees a need for that, wouldn't mind either.)
