Alien::Boost Alien package to make the Boost libraries available to other modules at C level

Good

Synopsis

Description

To make available some C++ libraries from Perl, sometimes you need the boost libraries in order to compile the C++ bindings. In linux you can rely on the distro package system, but in windows there isn't package system.

Also the Boost libraries are very useful, for example:

Some modules include boost as part of the distribution: Boost::Geometry::Utils, Boost::Graph but I think it's better to manage Boost as another module dependency

This module aim to make easier to module authors to manage the boost library dependency.
