What system are you on, Lieven?  On my debian system I have installed
the binary package (from Debian) called libboost-dev, and I've built
boost myself with no further problems.  Does your system have a
pre-built libboost-dev package?  If so, that's probably what you want:
it should only contain the header files and possibly a few libraries.
It will usually be installed in such a way that other programs can
find it automatically during the build.
