I agree, it causes more problems than it solves.

Takign a look at what other source type programs do (gcc, emacs, perl, etc.).
It seems that versioning the subdirectories under a common prefix location is
a workable practice. Would then something like the following work for us?


Those are the "source" files. For documentation it gets a little tricky. There
are two possible practices:

$prefix/share/boost/1.27.0/doc/...(reproduce html tree & files)


$prefix/share/doc/boost/1.27.0/...(reproduce html tree & files)
