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.

Yes, its capable. My point being that boost move in the direction of being able to be built and distributed in modules(perhaps using bpm) instead of putting everything in a superproject.
