Yes I see. In my version I search for the newest boost version and
take the version number from that include directory.
I should refine my macro, if I find multiple boost installations
I could use your approach for the newest directory version.
However the fallback alternative with BOOSTROOT looks fine too
(CXXFLAGS can be extended by $BOOSTROOT) but how is it possible
to determine the linker path (LDFLAGS) in
such a case. As long as not installed all the libraries reside in their
