I was in the wrong in that I had not looked at the 'parallel' directory
of property_map in order to see that it does indeed have a dependency
there on the graph library.

Looking at the file 'distributed_property_map.hpp', where the dependency
on graph exists, would it not be better to eventually move this and the
specializations of distributed_property_map to the graph library so that
property_map can then be independent of the graph library. I realize
this is more than just moving a file, but rather involves moving the
specializations of property map templates for the distributed property
map out of their places in property_map to some place under graph. I
also realize that this may be beyond what you have tasked yourself to
do, but I would really like to see property_map as a library on its own
independent of the graph library.
