That is also a bit beside my point. It doesn't matter for this use case
whether Boost is monolithic or not; it could be that only a few of the
libraries have in fact been installed. What matters is that the directory
structure is


and that the user wishes to build, test and optionally install one (and then
optionally another) of the libraries.
