This is a common situation. The boost directory structure doesn't play
nice with new libraries which are not already part of boost. When I put
the safe numerics library into the incubator, I used path names for
includes so that one would not have to do the above procedure for the
new library. This permitted one to build and run the tests and
examples, but of course created consternation of another sort.
