If you're using Boost.Build v2, I have an answer for you, but if
you're using make, I can't help. Anyway, even if you're providing
Makefiles, these are all standard problems you have to solve when
using any 3rd party lib.

?? I don't understand your questions. You're the one with a problem
that needs to be solved.

Sure, or you're going to have to tell me about a location that gets
put in the path used by your makefile so I can drop (a symlink to) my
boost tree there. The use of angle-includes is irrelevant to all
this, at least as far as GCC/mingw are concerned.
