FWIW, it's probably controlled by the --layout=versioned setting, but
you probably don't want to change this as it also affects the library names.
Personally, I just use the stage target and then manually copy the files
from stage\lib and include\boost myself; install always ends up doing
something weird that I don't like, so I avoid it.
