I moved the file as-is from the first repo to the other, as described here:

Then, assuming the result is include/boost/utility/next_prior.hpp in repo
iterator, I would rename it with `git mv` to
include/boost/iterator/next_prior.hpp. This ought to retain history. I would
then create the new forwarding file with the old name in a separate commit.
