Right. This is really a question about deployment of modular Boost.

The purpose of this thread is to solicit suggestions as to what a CMake
system for Boost should include. I'm aware that CMake includes CPACK
which I believe touches upon this subject. I hope that someone who
knows more about this than I can supply more information as to whether
we should include support for CPACK in the coming list of requirements
contained in the forthcoming call for submissions.
