Hope this isn't too stoopid of a question...
I just started using boost.build on win32 (coming from Linux) and I've
encountered something unexpected.
It appears that cygwin installs the boost headers in a directory called
"/usr/include/boost-VERSION/" (presently, "/usr/include/boost-1_33_1/"
On Linux (FC6), the boost headers are installed in
"/usr/include/boost/". (No, it's not a symlink.)
So, of course, includes like
in my source cannot be found.
I have temporarily fixed the problem in user-config.jam by adding:
This seems fairly nasty to me though, because now everyone on the
project has to know and/or remember to update user-config.jam whenever
boost is updated.
Is there a better way to handle this situation (in boost.build)?
