The right place to ask this question would be the users list, where
you'd probably get a better answer. But I'll try.

There's a configure script at the root:

If you run this it will create the makefile. Rather than use
subversion, you'd probably be better of using an official release, but
if you're using subversion the commands are something like:

    svn co boost-trunk
    cd boost-trunk

Note that this isn't an autoconf script and doesn't support all the
options that most configure scripts do, it's more of a wrapper around
the boost build system.

Hope that helps,
