Add --with-boost configuration flag

Issue #71 resolved
Nathan Litke created an issue

I'm building the current top-of-tree (d13a8803c4bd) on OS X 10.9.4. I've installed boost through MacPorts in its default location, /opt/local/include. The only way I've found to configure the build to find boost by setting CXXFLAGS:

../configure CXXFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include"

As with other external dependencies, it would be nice to have a flag to specify the path to boost, e.g.,

../configure --with-boost=/opt/local/include

Thanks,
Nathan

    Nathan,

    This seems a reasonable request. Would you fancy making the code change and generating a pull request? I would then review the change and merge it.

    Thank you very much for solving this issue. I wanted to propose to remove the boost headers from coin for a while now, so I'm happy to see that you already did it. It really makes sense to use boost from a System Installation.
