Indeed that filename is way too long. But apparently it is generated (by Doxygen), I don't know if it is easy to change that.

In Windows it looked more like this:


How critical is this file?

Regarding the Geometry, it's either a name generated by doxygen or by quickbook, probably the latter. The Accumulators' image name looks like generated by doxygen.

What exactly would you like to build? If you're using released version of Boost, to use Boost.Geometry you only need boost directory since it's a header-only library. In libs/geometry there is documentation, tests and examples, you could remove the whole directory. There may be a problem with libraries that need to be built, but even in this case you could throw away the doc and libs/*/doc directories.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
