I dont know if I post on the right mailing-list or if the project (boost + cmake) is still "alive".
But I found a bug trying to compile boost.1.41.cmake0 with visual studio 2010.
The BOOL_TOOLSET variable wasn't correctly initialized so when I used FindBoost package to find my boost libraries, the package was looking for wrong names.

So after many tries, I found the cmake file where to correct things :
where we have to add :

    set(BOOST_TOOLSET "vc100")
    set(BOOST_COMPILER "msvc")

I don't know if I need to push the patch on git or Troy will do it in the future.

But I hope my message will help some people.
