IMHO c:\boost is a very bad choice! Creating driectories directly in the
root is never nice, not even on Windows!

Why not $PROGRAM_FILES$\boost\ or even better


$VERSION$ is the version of boost and

$PROGRAM_FILES$ is what ever path your system tells you when asked with the
right Win32 API call?
(On my german system that would be C:\Programme)

Even for libraries this is IMHO the only "right" location to install too
per default.
