Everyone should review the following page:
-s means you are statically linking to the C++ runtime provided by
Microsoft, and is true for all the other platforms as well. Which
means you can have a boost dynamic library that statically links to
the C++ runtime..
In the original FindBoost.cmake that I wrote, I had cmake variables
that could be set for each of the boost compile variations. Since
people can build boost (or download it) in any of a multitude of
configurations then my suggestion would be to find the most popular
downloads for each platform and support those configurations out of
the box. For those like myself who build boost we know enough how to
set the cmake variables to find our boost libs.
Just my 2 cents.
