[cctbxbb] building cctbx with external boost

I vaguely remember a discussion some time ago about building cctbx
with stand-alone boost libraries. Do you know what boost versions are

Is using the --scan-boost option enough? I see that Gentoo has extra
patch to unbundle boost from cctbx:
Is it necessary?

I'm asking because at this moment we have in CCP4 two versions of
boost, one in cctbx and the other for building DSSP (it uses different
subset of boost libs than cctbx). It would make sense to use a single
version for both, if possible.
