It's the PACKAGE target. Right click on it in Visual Studio and click
"Build" to build a package. It requires NSIS (the Nullsoft
Installation System) to build the binary installer.
I know that the packaging works on Windows because it's where I had
been spending most of my time. Along with my patch to CPack, here
it builds modular installers that provide add/remove functionality for
the various components in Boost.
