Since they are extensions, they are not released into `master` branch [1],
so they are not included in the Boost official release.

You can clone the repo and checkout the `develop` branch, then copy any
extension you need from [2] directory.

Alternatively, you can follow this instruction [3] which is:
- shallow clone of the Boost superproject
- initialise bunch of required modules
- run to grab any required Boost libraries
- bootstrap b2 driver
- deploy all headers

And, simply, use Geometry from this custom installation - it's a header-only
library after all, no binaries to build and link against.
