That seems unnecessarily complex. My preference is this:

$prefix/boost_1_27_0/boost/.../*.hpp for headers
$prefix/boost_1_27_0/lib for compiled libraries
$prefix/boost_1_27_0/tools/build/*.jam for jam files

In my case $prefix is 'c:\lib'.

I like to keep separate versions in completely separate directories so
that they are easier to move/copy/delete independently.
