 If you require something like that, then several boost.pc files is the
 correct solution. You just need to have a sane way of finding out
 which targets are available. And you can use pkg-config
 --variable=name for that.

 In fewer words, make:

 $ pkg-config --foo boost-signals

 do something useful.

 Need to note that --define-variable is also available, and the output
 of e.g. --libs is interpolated.
