When trying to build Boost using LLVM, I had this error:
error: ISO C++17 does not allow ‘register’ storage class specifier [-Wregister]
I attached the project-config.jam file I used to this message. Someone please help me out (if there’s someone on here who can).

This seems a better question for cfe-dev or cfe-users
Yes, this keyword is no longer valid starting from C++17:
I realize that the “why” probably doesn’t help you move forth with your problem, so here are a couple suggestions how to get over it:
Build Boost in C++14 mode with -std=c++14
Cut out “register” from the Boost source and rebuild
Try a newer Boost version, it may have been fixed
The issue comes in part form the Python headers that have the keyword.
Unfortunately, this also means that there is an issue while building user code. But it’s not a Boost code issue for this library, but a Python one.
