I like to keep my Boost installations full and up to date to the latest release.

I just noticed that I sloppily approved libboost-dev-all, and some of my programs that I develop are not able to compile.

I think I can fix the double install, but I prefer the installation from source.

How can I point all of the applications that expect libboost packages to instead look for the libraries built and installed from source?
