What means to rebuild against the new Boost version?

when someone tell “rebuild against the new Boost version” regarding package mkvtoolnix-git , which commands to do to do it and is it good idea?

I see i am having package “boost” 1.76.0-1
kernel 5.13

It usually means you just re-install it from the AUR helper you use. It will rebuild it.

(I assume you used an AUR helper like yay or Pamac to get it installed in the first place)

When you compile an application with system-installed libraries, at a point in time, you compile against the current version of those libraries. If you update those libraries, it’s usually a good idea to recompile that application against the newer versions.
