To match the format of earlier releases, the release has its headers in
boost/ and the individual libs/<name>/include/ directories are removed.
If you do `git submodule update --init` and then `./bootstrap(.sh)` and then
`./b2 headers` you'll have something very similar to the release, except
that boost/ will contain symlinks (or hardlinks/junctions on Windows)
instead of copies. But it won't be the same as the actual release as
