Does the CMake/boost build make install a BoostConfig.cmake or
boost-config.cmake exports file? If this is done then I don't even
think there needs to be a FindBoost2.cmake.... find_package(Boost)
should work if the file is placed in lib/boost-<version>

Of course if you want to patch FindBoost to make this process easier
we can do that too.

Are there a lot of other differences between a make-installed version
of Boost w/CMake and a make-installed version Boost w/bjam?
