Simply do it in CI. All Boost builds are run (at least) on travis,
right? So all you need is a simple shell script (or a one-liner in
.travis.yml) that finds executable files with a forbidden suffix and
returns a message and error status code when found. This will block all
PRs and also flag commits pushed directly.

Client-side hooks are worthless for that as you can't force everyone to
install them.
