first of all I wish to thank you for your work with this nice and clean project!
I tried to compile the library with an already installed boost library so i used the command:

./configure --with-boost=/opt/local

as my boost library was installed on a Mac OS X 10.6 with MacPorts.
But the configure script could not find the library.
I discovered that deleting these two lines will do the trick:

vDir = os.listdir(self.boostIncDir)[0]
self.boostIncDir = os.path.join(self.boostIncDir, vDir)

I am not sure about what those lines do but now it works.
