What’s your goal in doing so? You only need to use nvcc when compiling code that uses CUDA language extensions (e.g. kernels that will run on the GPU). I’ve used Boost a lot with CUDA-based projects, and I just built Boost with gcc and linked it to my nvcc-compiled code. In some more exotic cases, CUDA linking can be a bit tricky to get working, but for simple cases, it’s pretty simple.
