I just add that directory to my include path (usually replacing the entry
for the previous Boost path in my include path).

By the way, you said "boost distribution", and I just assumed you mean the
Boost source from git. If you meant a Boost release then you don't need to
run "b2 headers". The boost subdirectory in that archive would already exist
with headers for all libraries.

It would be nice to have a way to "b2 install" only the header-only
