Note for the CMake side this is pretty simple to automate here. An
example would be these functions:

which are used here

to generate a list of headers to test and then to build and run the
tests. This tests both inclusion and double-inclusion to check for ODR
violations and problems with include guards.

The above were created for a specific project and aren't generic, but an
equivalent could easily be written for Boost.
