Subject: [boost] Description of pre-requisites for building Boost 1.58.0?

While trying to build Boost on Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS I noticed that the build
failed because some library dependencies were missing on my system. I was
unable to find documentation about library dependencies and other
pre-requisites for building Boost.
Are these documented somewhere?

Some build related info can be found here, but I couldn't find info about
required libraries:

I was able to build Boost after installing libpython-dev, libbz2-dev
packages. This was with default Boost configuration, so other libraries may
be required for custom configurations.
