As mentioned before - it is not only your cmake port, all presented
boost-cmake files have ported only fraction of the required functionality.
For instance feature tests used in Jamfile to test for presence/absence of
some C++ features to control the build.
If it's so easy to do it with Cmake I'm wondering why it wasn't done.
I've the impression that only the easy parts of Jamfile have been ported.
The difficult parts are left ...

As Klemens already mentioned, I'm missing a discussion about the
requirements of the boost build system and a comparison of pros/cons of
other build systems on the ML.
