The answer is twofold:

out of box: no
using additional tools: yes

uBLAS provides everything, except the QR-decomposition. Depending whether you
have (small) dense or (large) sparse systems you have to call an external
library (or contribute a qr decomposition).

LAPACK binding are available in the boost-sandbox SVN repository. Bindings to
CXSparse are on my page:

However, both only provide bindings to LU, but not QR decomposition.
