I have installed boost version 1.43 into the /common/bifa shared area such that (hopefully) other people can used the installation without having to install it in their own areas.
Making the boost installation visible.
The following need to be run in order to make boost available, either by putting them in a script to be run as required or by incoporating into the .profile
Boost has been built with gcc 4.3.3, because boost 1-43 has problems with the gcc (4.0.1) that comes preinstalled on our platform. The updated path ensures the new gcc is used in preference to the preinstalled gcc. The path also ensures that bjam is available.
This keeps boost happy
This ensures that the libraries needed by boost are available.
This configuration results in the sitconfig.jam file at /common/bifa/Dev/ThirdParty/boost-1-43/tools/build/v2 being used, which should not cause problems
