    Linux - how to point make at boost installation

    Hello

    I am having some trouble using the Collada DOM on my current project. I need to point inform make to use the boost installation I have in /usr/local/include/ instead of the installation found by default in /usr/include.

    I can't seem to find where I can do it in the makefiles - I'm not very good editing makefiles.

    I see a variable "external-libs" that I may be able use to redirect the make process with but I am not sure this is the way to go.

    Any suggestions?

    Tangential question for those in the know:
    Why doesn't the collada-dom employ the use of a "configure" script? I'm just curious. Being able to use a configure script would allow many users to smooth out compilaton and installation problems I would think.

    I solved my problem.

    I hacked dom.mk so that if it detected the linux platform it would point to the boost installation of my choosing.
