The 30K OS X installer is for Leopard or newer; it downloads the Boost
libraries you request on-the-fly, as part of installation. I can build
a monolithic installer as well (which will work on Tiger and newer).

They're in pretty good shape, I think, although we can certainly clean
up the presentation somewhat.

I'll have to leave the testing question to Troy, who is our testing
guru. If you'd like to test out a binary installer for 10.4 (Tiger),
I'd be happy to go build one for you.
