I use Eclipse to develop code that uses Boost heavily, and I've been
fairly happy with it.

My recommendation is that you use the latest version (Juno), because
it contains a fix for a bug present in previous versions that caused
Eclipse to parse Boost headers inaccurately.

As for settings, I prefer to provide the include paths manually. That
doesn't (necessarily) mean auto-discovering them doesn't work, just
that I haven't taken the time for figure out how to use it.
