Frankly, I don't see the advantage to split such a trivial file:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.5)

add_library(boost_foo INTERFACE)
add_library(Boost::foo alias boost_foo)
target_include_directories(boost_foo INTERFACE include)

target_link_libraries(boost_foo INTERFACE

That's it for a header only library (as I said, I won't deal with testing, installation etc)
For a more complex file, I see the benefit of splitting it up

Boost:: is what cmake is currently using when using find_package(Boost ...)
