You can follow the instructions in

I haven't tested the libraries one by one. It's possible that some don't
work; but if so, to address the problem, I'll first need to know which
libraries don't work.

- bpm likes to place the headers in $BOOST_ROOT/include/boost, instead of
- We need to modularize the documentation so that installing a library via
bpm also installs its documentation
- And we need to decide what to do with parts of the release that aren't
currently part of a submodule, such as for example the more/ subdirectory.

Apart from that, I see no major roadblocks for doing a bpm release right now
on the basis of 1.58.0, but as I'm not very familiar with the release
procedure, which is more involved than I thought, there may be something
that I've missed.
