I would add though that often you don't want to test against Boost
HEAD as Antony's script does, but rather some Boost release. I use
one of three methods here: (i) simply apt-get install libboost-dev on
travis, that'll fetch some fairly ancient but stable Boost (ii) do
add-apt-repository -y ppa:boost-latest/ppa first and then install
Boost, this gets a fairly new (currently 1.55) Boost (iii) wget which is
always the latest Boost stable release and unpack it, symlinking in
your project into libs and running ./b2 headers to link it in.
