Please put all your stuff into a folder -- I extracted it into my
downloads directory, then had to pick it apart from the other stuff
there. Obviously a proper installer would fix this.

You don't seem to package zlib and bzip2 libraries for
boost::iostreams compression. I've previously had great difficulties
getting these to build on windows, so if you provided them, that would
be nice.
