This is probably fine, but it seems likely that the intended usage is
that you'd set lib to just "stage\lib" since that's the relative path
from the base dir.

This needs to be the specific library names that you want to link, not
the path to them.

(If you were using MSVC then auto-link would supply these for you, but I
don't think the other compilers support this.)

This, on the other hand, presumably needs to be $(#boost.lib), not

I don't use that IDE myself so I can't give you more specific help, but
the -L#$%&???WTF???&%$# path seems highly suspicious and it's probably
putting that in because you're trying to make an invalid variable
