I typically compile and install boost with the --layout=system
option, which produces the same directory layout I get with the boost
rpms. I think AX_PATH_BOOST should recognize that, too.
(Headers are in <prefix>/include/boost, not <prefix>/include/boost-<version>,
and libraries don't contain a version tag in their name.)
