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 <https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/90985>
"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.)
