Indeed CMake's FindBoost module needs to be uprgaded to be able to find libs with the new name layout (although it needs to be upgraded each time there is a boost release anyway...)
I would recommand trying this patch which is imminent to be merged in CMake (just remplace your local FindBoost.cmake found in your CMake install dir): https://gitlab.kitware.com/cmake/cmake/merge_requests/1625

Hello Joël,

thank you for your response. Patching CMake however seems a bit much, especially the finder scripts. I was hoping for a less intrusive version. I am reluctant because I maintain those projects over at least 5 different architectures, some of which have older (3.4.x) CMake versions installed and I can't even be sure they will work with a 3.10.x finder script. Sure, I could manually build CMake there as well but it all seems so unnecessary, given that it's just a strange file naming scheme change. I would not agree that CMake needs upgrading for every new boost version. During the last years I was going pretty well with the scheme I had and even old CMakes could easily find it provided I used 

set(Boost_ADDITIONAL_VERSIONS "1.66.0")

 ... which I think is what you are referring to.

I will try the patched finder though as a last resort.

Best regards...
