is boost required for running sdcc (not for compiling the sdcc suite itself)?
i tried to figure out which boost libraries are linked and could not find any dependency in sdcc or sdcpp.
Boost libraries are not required. Boost provides many useful headers which are used by some sdcc ports when sdcc itself is compiled.
When running ./configure on the sdcc build, it complains that it cannot find a boost file "boost library not found (boost/graph/adjacency_list.hpp)". But that file is present in the default boost location (/opt/local/include).
How to tell sdcc where boost is?
./configure ... CPPFLAGS=-I/opt/local/include
(I forgot it is CPPFLAGS or CXXFLAGS, run configure -h to confirm)
