Hmm. I am a system packager, thanks for your insights.

I don't see a way to just get binaries with names like BOOST_LIB_PREFIX,

Renaming at install time (which all the linux packagers are doing) is
fine for static libs, but for shared libs the odd names are compiled
into the SONAME, which is a problem. I can either edit the binary file
(!) or just compile with the names I use. Obviously, it would be simpler
to hack the build process.

Is there a hack or (better) a clean way to force the naming convention,
at compile time?
