When building the final archive, it'll be better to do a CVS export so the
administrative directories will be removed. Optionally, after making the
tar-ball, we could compress it with the bzip2 program, which makes the
smallest archives. After transferring the boost.bz2 file to the web site,
then it can be revised to *.gz and *.zip files.
Does the compile farm have Windows boxes? If so, maybe a similar procedure
can be done to create the *.zip file instead.
