We (I) removed the option. The problem is that, as the number of Boost
libraries become enormous, the list of options grew too long to
handle. What we'd like to do is just have two variables,
BOOST_INCLUDE_LIBS and BOOST_EXCLUDE_LIBS. Setting the first one to a
list of libraries builds those libraries (and whatever they depend
on), while setting the second one to a list of libraries builds
everything except those libraries (and whatever libraries depend on
