Hello all,

I am trying to build the Cortex-VFX library. SCons was used to handle the
build part. I seem to miss something though.

Here is where i have a problem :

if not c.CheckLibWithHeader( env.subst( "boost_iostreams" +
env["BOOST_LIB_SUFFIX"] ), "boost/filesystem/path.hpp", "CXX" ) :
sys.stderr.write( "ERROR : unable to find the boost libraries - check
Exit( 1 )

I've installed all the boost headers and libraries and i still get this
message :

Checking for C++ library boost_iostreams-1_38_... no
ERROR : unable to find the boost libraries - check BOOST_LIB_PATH.

I've set the right path to boost libs : /usr/local/lib. For example :

I am stuck, i've read the SCons but i can't see anything wrong in my
configuration. Is there anyone with a good grasp on SCons who could help me

Thanks a lot.
