Happy New Year :-)

Let's assume Windows then. Let's say that the package installer installs
libs/this and libs/that into C:\boost-1.57.0, and then does the equivalent
of "b2 headers". The header links go into C:\boost-1.57.0\boost, and the
user needs to add C:\boost-1.57.0 to the include path. I say that -I
C:\boost-1.57.0\include is better and more consistent with expectations.
