[pkg-boost-devel] Packaging RC_1_34_0 and/or whole Boost distribution

Hi Guys,

I was wondering how, if it would be possible, a CVS snapshot from HEAD
would be packaged to include the whole Boost distribution? I had been
thinking along the following lines:

    * Do a CVS checkout
    * Maintain a local copy of the debian/ directory
    * Build one boost package (or pseudo package) which installs all
the boost libraries build
    * build another package which contains the Boost.Build files that
define certain targets and rules (like the Boost root Jamfile, special
Boost specific rules, among others)

I noticed that there's a libboost-dev in experimental that's labeled
1.33.1+1.34.0-cvs20060531-1 . I haven't checked yet, but is there any
chance this already contains the Boost root Jamfile and other
Boost.Build targets?

Your response would be very much appreciated.
