Right you are. Links to new versions and tabular format included.

Feeling shamed into redoing it, I wrote a script that assumes that if
file boost/X/F.hpp includes file boost/Y/f.hpp, then project X depends
on Y. For toplevel files, if a file boost/K.hpp exists as well as a
directory boost/K, then an include of boost/K.hpp is a dependency on K.
  for files boost/R.hpp where no subdirectory R exists, the dependency
is either determined via an incomplete hand-constructed list of mappings
from file to project, or the dependency is on special project
UNCATEGORIZED. If a file is found that includes a file that does not
exist, the dependency is on project MISSING.

Script is here:
