Subject: [Boost-cmake] link tests

I was trying to fix asio link tests and hit a couple of snags. I put in
a workaround (which I bet breaks more than it fixes) and would like some
feedback from kitware. The problems i was trying to fix:

1. The test is to ensure that linking against another built library
succeeds. Typically cmake handles things internally with absolute paths
(not with -L). How do I send the full path of e.g. boost_system, which
is hidden from me, to a ctest process (which in turn invokes a cmake
process, whch invokes a make process)?

2. The link tests didn't obey CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER, etc. Compile tests
probably still don't...

here's the diff:
