Use svk:

1. Mirror Boost:

        svk mirror <boost url> //mirrors/boost
        svk sync -s HEAD

2. Create a directory for your patched version

        svk cp //mirrors/boost //work/boost

3. Hack on //work/boost as necessary

4. When you want to grab newer release/trunk state of boost, do:

        svk sync //mirrors/boost
        svk smerge //mirrors/boost //work/bost
