Boost-Build needs: - To have basic features that CMake and autotools have for years like find_library, find_file. - Documentation so writing new Boost library would not become total and absolute nightmare to somebody who is familiar with better alternatives - It may even need to be totally replaced with CMake at all. And I don't like CMake too much but it is only existing relatievely mature build tool that supports MSVC. Sorry if I may be heard rude, but what is Boost need is Boost-Build replacement or significant functional and usability improvement. Artyom
