This, to me, is just another indicator that boost would profit from
actually treating these as separate (sub-)projects. Let users configure
and build them independently, and merely provide a wrapper build script
that knows about the library interdependencies, and thus can help build
things in the right order (instead of having each library build assume
its prerequisites were already installed.

But I have been singing that song for years now, and no change is in
sight. :-(
