        Please excuse the total newbie question. I wanted to try to
convert some c++ libraries to python and wanted to use py_cpp and
hence wanted to "install" boost under linux. I downloaded which unzips into a directory called boost_1_18_1. Now,
there are no makefiles or anything like that. So, am I correct to
assume that boost does not require one to build a library of any kind
and all that is needed is the source tree?? This is the first time I
am seeing something of this kind. Usually there is some kind of
library that goes with a development package. I can see that all the
headers (*.hpp) are in the boost directory. Is this stuff sufficient
and "standalone"? Or am I missing something??
