Hi,

I had a user complaining that the easybuild generated Boost modules do not set 
a BOOST_ROOT env variable.  Having done a bit of research, it seems that this 
is quite common (standard?) thing to have and many set-ups expect this.  They 
figured themselves by 

export BOOST_ROOT=$EBROOTBOOST

Could there be an updated to have EB creating modules which do that 
out-of-the-box?  If I am lucky, a change in boost.py easyblock would fix that 
for all.  Otherwise, updating the easyconfigs for the latest version(s) should 
suffice.

Thanks
  Joachim
