That import statement is quite common among Boost libraries, so it
shouldn't cause trouble itself. It is also unrelated to the error
although I'd like to improve it so patching isn't required.

That target is defined 6 lines below that:

I'm not sure what else you are doing, but is it possible you are
removing the "test" folder? If so those checks could likely be moved to
another folder.

Is there some common practice where to put such configure checks that
are required to build the library?
