I've always held that using, and hence compiling, Boost libraries should
be as easy as just including the sources in your project. And I think
most Boost libraries fall into that mode. Perhaps helping out to
identify where that's ot the case and finding ways to make it that way
would be beneficial to the whole Boost community.
