Something I need to add to the graph docs:
The graph library does not require compilation/installation. Like
most of boost, it is entirely header files.
However, there are plenty of example programs, which users will
want to compile and run.
Also, there are test files, which users often like to compile and
run to verify that there setup is OK, and to get a warm fuzzy
feeling about the reliability of the library.
