    If you are using cmake, clone and as a a sub directory - or I’ve had pretty good luck using the fetch content cmake stuff to just grab and build boost with my code.

    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. 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.
