That would be a nice solution, but it is a couple (~10) files in the 
src/boost_src directory. Directly under the src directory there are much 
more files, and the names and number of these will frequently change so 
I don't want to keep maintaining this list. Although I could add the 
generation of Makevars to my build script.

Thanks for the suggestion.
