This is where I am at currently. I am trying to update all the testing
Cmake files so that they have all the proper includes.

  I came up with the following macro which I put in the
BoostTest.cmake file:

macro(boost_test_add_dependent_includes includes)
   foreach (include ${includes})
     #message(STATUS "include: ${include}")
   endforeach (include ${includes})
endmacro(boost_test_add_dependent_includes includes)

Which for some of the testing cmake files is being invoked like this:

#-- Needed include directories for the tests

Which is getting ugly quick. I was wanting to do something like is
done with the "module.cmake" file to just list the upper dependencies
and let cmake figure out all the rest.
