In fact, boost has cmake files now — pretty recent addition and I haven’t got around to testing, but no reason to think it doesn’t work. https://github.com/boostorg/boost. Also, boost is getting more modular with every release — more and more libraries can be pulled independently with mostly only depending on boost.core. Asio has been like this forever, but Boost.math is a recent example to the bandwagon. You can find an independent release package for math on GitHub now.
Is there a uniform boost release download url?

Do you build boost from sources? If so, maybe get the tar balls from their Github repository?
