So in the past the top level directory matched what we were going to
eventually release as the beta. E.G. we would have which would contain the directory
boost_1_XX_0_b1 (a similar thing for releases, without the _b1). That way
once we have found a -rcY that everyone is happy with, we just need to
re-name the archives and push them to sourceforge.

Was it intentional that the directory within is "boost_1_61_0_b1_rc2"? If
so, does that mean that we will have to do a separate build (with
changes?!?!) when we move from our last rc to the beta release?
