On my 3-year-old dev box with a spinny hard drive, extracting Boost 1.57.0 takes 4 minutes, and a complete x86 build plus cleanup takes 10 minutes, resulting in 2.03 GB of headers and DLLs/LIBs. Neither seems especially onerous, aside from the fact that the Getting Started documentation doesn't say to use a parallel build, which is *really* bad.
