I have a project that is using boost/filesystem and I am hoping to include its repository https://github.com/boostorg/filesystem in my project. The reason is because usually different users have different ways of installing boost and I am hoping to resolve this dependency issue for them (and besides, the boost super project is really huge). My question is

  • Is it possible to isolate boost/filesystem module entirely from the boost super project?
  • How can I build the library libboost_filesystem.so from the https://github.com/boostorg/filesystem repository?
