*[I initialially raised this question in
<>, but @mclaw recommended this
mailing list.]*

Similar to many other packages (eg: curl, krb5, pcre, xml2, xslt etc..),
can we also ship boost-config that would provide the installation options ?

We can probably start with something like this ?

$ /usr/bin/boost-config --help
Usage: boost-config [ options ]

  --cflags print compiler options
  --ldflags print linker options
  --prefix print the boost prefix
  --version print the boost version
  --help print this usage summary

$ /usr/bin/boost-config --version
$ /usr/bin/boost-config --cflags
$ /usr/bin/boost-config --ldflags
-L/usr/lib64 -Wl,-R/usr/lib64
