I'm packaging some software for distribution, and the software depends upon
the 'program_options' library.

I don't want to assume that the user has boost installed, or ever jam. So I
was wondering about the potential for automagically building and using the
'program_options' library if it is not already present on the user's system.

I would include the source files in libs/program_options/, and write a small
Makefile for it.
I would also include all the Boost headers.

Is this sufficient, even though it wouldn't run the Boost configure script
to determine system-specific settings?
Can you see any problems in building this library without doing a full Boost
