echo $BOOST_ROOT -> /opt/lib/boost/boost_1_56_0
does not change anything.
Running configure with
checking build system type... Invalid configuration
`/opt/lib/boost/boost_1_56_0': machine `/opt/lib/boost/boost_1_56_0' not
configure: error: /bin/bash ../config.sub /opt/lib/boost/boost_1_56_0 failed
What can I do?
