Comment (by mamoll):

 I added that numpy dependency. We can of course easily undo this, but then
 what gets installed when someone installs boost with non-default variants
 will depend on whether someone has numpy installed. Boost will
 automatically compile the numpy library when it's detected at build time.
 That's not ideal either. I'd actually like to use this library in another
 project, so I lean in favor of enabling numpy support, but that leads to
 this circular dependency. If we want to disable it, we'll have to patch
 the Boost code to remove the numpy check.
