Nothing serious at this point. It just takes time to compile, wait for
compile error (which is all about include paths at this point), add
the proper module dependency, re-run cmake, re-run make, wait for
compile error....

There have been some general bug fixes and enhancements to the core
Boost-CMake files which ate up some time. I did add the ability of the
graphviz output to have those libraries that are actually compiled to
have a colored node which makes it easier to see those libraries in
the dependency graph.

For those interested, here is the latest dependency graph (which will
change as soon as I do the next compile cycle most likely) but gives
you an idea of what boost is looking like.
