Boost-Build :

Sorry. Both would be nice, but I'm specifically writing about a
framework for C++ Boost.

Once you have the tree, as documented by Apple, that's your framework
right there. OSX Boost users can then just add '-framework Boost' to
gcc for building projects that include Boost and it will find what it
needs. This script will give you an idea of what I'm doing outside of
the Boost build system to get a framework:

For completeness an Info.plist file should be written into the
Resources directory of the framework tree, but I'm not doing this in
the script yet.

I apologize if this should have been sent to the developers list
