CentOS provides by default boost 1.53.0 which is one release too old (boost/asio/coroutine.hpp appeared in 1.54.0).
Perhaps this could help?

This is a problem with too old boost. However, we can do couple things to improve the situation:

  1. Doc to be updated (make it clearer which boost version is needed)
  2. Add a check in configure whether coroutine.hpp is available or what is the boost version.

The configure script should detect if coroutine.hpp is present and abort if missing. In such case it should print out that more recent Boost is needed.

In m4macros/ax_boost_for_kea.m4 there is a AC_CHECK_HEADERS with a long list of required headers including boost/asio/coroutine.hpp so IMHO the only required action is to check if this check is effective...
So I checked on my CentOS VM moving the file into .h and got:

checking boost/function.hpp usability... yes
checking boost/function.hpp presence... yes
checking for boost/function.hpp... yes
checking boost/asio/coroutine.hpp usability... no
checking boost/asio/coroutine.hpp presence... no
checking for boost/asio/coroutine.hpp... no
configure: error: Missing required header files.

I propose to close this ticket.

Maybe we should alter the message to include a suggestion of using a newer version? We apparently know coroutine was added in 1.54, so we need at least that.

Updated the error message to say that the header is either missing or too old. We need at least boost 1.57.

It's an easy review (1 line change)

Tested on CentOS 7.4 (with boost installed from RPM and also 1.65 installed from sources)
