Actually, I hacked around the issue with the _boost_STATIC_TAG variable
because that would break the build anyway...the patch is a simple two-liner
from the stock FindBoost.cmake.

Yeah, I set BOOST_ROOT in CMake and along with the _boost_STATIC_TAG fix,
that did the trick.

Yeah, it'd be a very good idea to use the includes as a hint, at least with
the tree organized as it is on Windows. On Unixy systems, it won't work so
well, but we can find things easier there anyway, right? :)
