I manage a project (that's soon to go open source) that depends on Boost
libs (the specific ones listed at the end of this email).
I want to include Boost source for these libs in my project's source
tarball (much the same way Subversion does for apr, apr-util, and neon; I'm
sure other projects do similar things) and then include the
Boost-lib-building in the build-from-source procedure for my project's
software, all by just using GNU-make 3.80 or above.
Is this feasible? If so, can I do it without having to include *the
entire* source-code set (with it's enormouse number of files) or being
forced to use bjam?
Here's the Boost libs we currently use (but we may use more someday):
