Thanks all for the comments.

Some years ago I got the impression boost was not so welcomed, now it
seems different. Being this the case I guess I can reconsider a Octave
link to BGL.

Indeed the bernoulli function is not available in my distro, so I am
using a custom install of Boost. It was just an example... there are
several TODOs of Octave that could be easily completed via boost...

What about the license issue brought up by Olaf?
