I don't know about official support, but I created one a while ago and
did some cleanup on it and put it up on GitHub at It's working for me in
admittedly simple use cases. I've only used it with CUDA 9, so it might
be lacking with older versions of nvcc.

I would love to help get this into Boost.Build, but I doubt it is
production quality at this point. I am not a CUDA expert and I don't
know if this toolset supports everything required. It certainly needs
to support some of the newer (and awesome) features in the latest
Boost.Build like cxxstd.
