Exactly what I suspected. So would you mind explaining why you can't use
the version in /usr? I'd just like to know wether the script might
actually need a minimum as well as a maximum number, because boost
doesn't play by the rules and breaks source/binary compatibility.

Which still has the two problems

a) it puts two completely useless variables into the cache
b) it doesn't break the loop as soon as it finds a proper include dir
(hmm, maybe thats actually needed - I'll have a closer look tomorrow,
need some sleep now).

I'm leaning towards agreement, but am not yet completely convinced that
its absolutely necessary to go on searching for "preferred" paths even
if the system path meets the expectations (i.e. has a version that is
larger than the minimum required).


You could live a better life, if you had a better mind and a better body.
