It is very sad that cmake doesn't (AFAIK) support directory scoped target names.
Conditional activation is not ideal either, because at some point someone
probably wants to build all of boost and run all the tests together
(e.g. release / integration tests).
Prefixing everything with boost_<lib>_<target> is probably the cleanest
solution but annoying to type.
Not sure if there is a better solution
