These files are generated by `b2 install`, they don't reside in a repo. The
difference is that at the moment they are generated in separate
CMake-accessible directories so that `find_package` can find them, whereas
if we drop that, they'll only need to be accessible to BoostConfig.cmake,
probably in subdirectories below it.
