Ok, that makes sense as long as you can use --with-<whatever>.

That is ... unfortunate. However I've only got the subdirectories
libs/thread, libs/regex, libs/config in this particular location, so I tried
building from the root using --stagedir. This time "\lib" was appended to
the stage dir, i.e. "--stage-dir=..\..\libs\boost" resulted in the libraries
staged into "..\..\libs\boost\lib".

As expected?
