Depends how their packaging is set up: for comparison and an estimation
of the number of files involved:

address@hidden [17:08][347]/usr/pkgsrc/devel> wc -l boost-*/PLIST*
     510 boost-build/PLIST
    4480 boost-docs/PLIST
    3573 boost-headers/PLIST
       2 boost-jam/PLIST
      32 boost-libs/PLIST
       4 boost-python/PLIST
    8601 total

So, I'm assuming we should now be able to get away with a dep on just
boost-headers, which will save a chunk of space and time.  Thankyou.
