#1802 new Feature Requests

Add autodetection of Expat and MPI in configure

Reported by: jewillco@… Owned by: Vladimir Prus
Milestone: Boost 1.42.0 Component: build
Version: Boost 1.35.0 Severity: Not Applicable
Keywords: Cc:


The configure script in Boost already autodetects the presence and versions of Python and ICU, but the paths for Expat and the user's MPI implementation must be provided by hand. It would be useful if the script found those and added them to user-config.jam automatically.

This should be done as part of configure redux.
