Yes, but it don't solve the problem "in general as there is no general way
to identify boost binaries other than the
native ones. Which means even if I provide a FindBoost version which is
modified (like Michael's one)
it will only work if the developer have put the binaries the way I decided
they should be, not in a "conventional" way,
which is my problem.
