But then, have we to include two license texts (Boost and GPL) into
source files linking to boost or including boost (since this probably
counts as a derivative work also of boost)?


The Boost licence doesn't define what a "derivative work" is but, according to this reference:

simply using functions or classes from a Boost library doesn't seem to be enough to create a "derivative work".

Of course, IANAL, and the discussion:

didn't really help me get a clearer picture (just a headache).
