is another way to get the tree, this is a stable released version, and
the newest released version.
I have not tried this, but I encourage you to, and if it works, we might
simply write a script for folks to use it.
Parting thoughts. It may be reasonable to offer a 2 part solution to
this problem once and for all:
(1) create a CMake target which is marked with
that serves to install these boost headers using the svn on tags line
above, and does so into <kicad>/include/boost
The EXCLUDE_FROM_ALL flag means that this installation is optional,
folks using package management will not want to do this install, so the
target will not get triggered unless you invoke it.
(2) we copy the FindBoost.cmake from a recent CMake, and put it into our
CMakeModules directory, and enhance it to look in <kicad>/include/boost
ALSO, but not exclusively.
This is the best I can offer, I am out of time on it.
