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
