Personally, I don't think it's a good idea to these libraries included in
Boost. It may cause number of problems, versions compatibility, duplicated
There are Boost Build extensions available which allow to build 3rd-party
libraries in fairly easy way:
I did some experiments 2 days ago and with success. I'm going to try them
with Boost.GIL soon.
IMHO, the build extensions are the right way to go here.
