This is at present roughly achievable with the following sequence of

  git clone --depth 1
  cd boost
  git submodule update --init tools/boostdep libs/$X
  python tools/boostdep/depinst/ -X test $X
  ./b2 --prefix=$Y --with-$X install

But that's an entirely different use case. This is

  Boost Github -> user

as opposed to

  Boost Github -> Boost release -> package manager (apt, conan, vcpkg) ->

Boost list run by bdawes at, gregod at, cpdaniel at, john at
