Fix for Boost 1.73 Compilation Error


If you are going to be compiling the 5.1.6 release against Boost 1.73, you
will probably need to backport the patch given in
https://gitlab.com/kicad/code/kicad/-/merge_requests/207 to the branch. I
have already cherry-picked it to the 5.1 branch, so the head of both 5.1
and master should compile on it with no patching - only the
released version may have issues.

   - There are a few Linux distributions currently packaging up Boost 1.73,
   so please be aware this may be an issue (Steve, you will probably need to
   add this to Fedora's Rawhide build soon).
   - Homebrew doesn't have it yet, but there is a PR in progress to bump
   the version: https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-core/pull/53874.
