I definitely wouldn't want to install a JVM just to build boost.

If I make a POC of building Boost for VS2015 with debug/release,
shared/static in 4 days, would you reconsider your position?

Hi Francis,
I'm not sure what a POC is - and as I signed I am just a user here.

>From my point of view, it is not a matter of how quickly Boost could be
ported to build with Gradle or any other Java-based build system: the
downside would simply be the added dependency on Java.
