Ok, I guess that makes sense.
I'll have a think about how cmake could be made to work with this.

What did the boostpro installer do? Didnt it put the files under "program
files" and "program files (x86)"? Not that I really like having boost under
there, but at least it makes sense from a 32/64 bit point of view. And you
can point to a complete installation with the BOOST_ROOT environment
variable (which cmake looks at). It would mean multiple copies of all the
headers though...
