You don't need the entire Boost to test Hana with Boost.Build. There is no
easy way at present to get just the subset you would need, or even determine
what that subset is, but this is not a limitation of Boost.Build or of the
current Boost structure. The modules are optional. The main test script does
include everything but it should be easy to fix it to walk the tree instead.
The main build script has already been made intelligent enough to build
what's there and not build what isn't.
To fully test Hana, by the way, you do need a number of other Boost
libraries, mostly because of the ext/ directory. Or so Boostdep informs me.
