Right. You take the right steps. However, the program must be linked to
Boost.Options, which is a non-header-only library.

The provided jamfile does that for you, and otherwise you have to do it
yourself. If using Visual Studio, there is a solution doing this.

We don't distribute the executables because... they are OS-dependant, so
I can provide one for Windows (which needs updates regularly) but not
for all imaginable Linux distributions.
