I've applied the Boost.Build changes. I don't
want to apply the changes to Boost proper in
svn, since it'll break without the git layout.
Here are the changes that need to happen in git:
- Use the original boost-root patch (i.e. no <dependency>)
- Change all uses of boost//headers to
<implicit-dependency>/boost//headers. <use> <source> and <library> do not
work correctly for handling generated headers.
This is the cause of the build problems with
the original patch.
- Add <implicit-dependency>/boost//headers to all
library and test targets.
- Change the header install glob to search the
correct include directories
