So basically there is the Boost-Cmake located at www.gitorious.com/boost

Development stopped at Boost 1.41.0 due to someone stepping forward to  
do all the merges/testing with the newer releases of boost. I think  
someone did a clone and applied some of the boost 1.42 patches to  
their clone but nothing "official" from boost.org. The git repo is  
there if someone wants to step forward and coordinate a release.
