I volunteer to do this and clean up the entire boost mess during the
next two weeks if there are no objections.
One question - How version specific are the boost headers? If a
particular version of headers are included will that prevent it being
compiled on a system with a different level installed. I guess on
windows this isn't likely to be a problem because chances are people
won't have it installed, but on linux people may well have (or may
want to) just install their distro's libboost-dev package which
probably won't be the same level as the headers included with kicad.
I would hope I can make the <kicad>/include/boost directory have higher
search priority than the system one.
If that can be achieved, then the compiler will not need to look for the
system installed headers, and won't.
