The set of libraries that have extraneous files/dirs are roughly:
algorithm, align, asio, assert, bind, chrono, compatibility, compute,
concept_check, config, container, context, conversion, convert, core, crc,
date_time, disjoint_sets, dynamic_bitset, endian, filesystem, format,
functional, fusion, geometry, gil, heap, interprocess, intrusive,
lexical_cast, locale, log, math, move, mpl, multi_index, multiprecision,
numeric, phoenix, polygon, predef (yes my own lib, I know), property_tree,
proto, python, random, random, regex, serialization, smart_ptr, sort,
spirit, statechart, static_assert, test, thread, tokenizer, type_index,
type_traits, typeof, units, unordered, utility, uuid, variant, wave, and
