Ah. I forgot the details of boost-install.
I was thinking that the cmake files were
based on virtual-targets instead of main-targets.
Also, checking ZLIB_SOURCE is wrong, because
the path can also be specified in user-config.jam.

We still need to indicate the dependency on zlib
somehow, right. If we don't create a boost_zlib.cmake
file, then we'll need find_dependency(ZLIB) or
something similar.
