Why is there an extra directory added when installing boost?

Nelson, Jarom

(Windows 7, MSVC 2015)

I’d like to install the boost library and headers to a path, say  D:/third_party.  To do this, I’ve run

bootstrap.bat --prefix=D:/third_party

followed by

b2 install --prefix=D:/third_party

 

I would expect boost library binaries to then be installed to:

D:/third_party/lib

And boost headers to:

D:/third_party/include/boost

 

The library binaries are installed where I expect, however, the headers are installed to:

D:/third_party/include/boost-1_62/boost

 

I’d rather not have to add the boost-1_62 directory to my include path or manually move folders to remove the extra directory. How can I call b2 with the correct option so that the boost headers are installed to D:/third_party/include/boost?
