Which environmental variables need to be set in boost?
I'm going to write a boost installer/wrapper which will DL the latest
.zip to %TEMP%, extract it, run the bjam tool setting the prefix to
[INSTALLDIR], then remove zip + extracted and add environmental
So which environmental variables do I need to add?
I know that many projects (i.e.: CppCMS, Wt) use Boost in there
compile+build processes & I want to automate the entire
install+compilation of these projects, so I thought I'd start by
packaging the boost library, for bootstrapping onto the meta
installer. BOOST_DIR &etc need to be set...
Is there a list somewhere of all the environmental variables I need to set?
I'll be writing this in NSIS, or if there's interest, in WiX and
binaries for .deb & .rpm (if there aren't already).
Please tell me which environ var I need to set.
