Linux is case sensitive. So, the source directory would
be /root/Alap/md/Boost_1_43_0

The "standard" way to build boost is the following, though:
 cd /root/Alap/md/Boost_1_43_0
 mkdir build-linux
 cd build-linux
 cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/root/Alap/md/deliveries/boost-1.43.0 ..
 make install
 cd ..
 # optionally, delete the build directory:
 rm -rf build-linux

Now, Troy does no longer (have the time to) maintain boost-cmake. Isidor
Zeuner kindly maintain it in his own gitorious cloned repository:
I've successfully built (for Fedora/RedHat) Boost-1.44 from that

Best Regards
