Fantastic that it works so simply, thanks for the report. If I remember
correctly I tweaked the CPACK_PACKAGE_NAME from "Boost" to "Boost C++
Libraries" to get a prettier name on OSX and windows installer
executables. There must some subtlety of cpack that I don't get. If
any cpack experts want to look at this, your patches are welcome. For
now I'm going to just switch it back to "Boost", as Doug had set it...
