This is the proposed changelog entry:

  98.?	[build]		jinmei
	The ./configure script now tries to search some common include
	paths for boost header files to minimize the need for explicit
	configuration with --with-boost-include. (Trac #323, svn rTBD)

There's mix of tabs and spaces, but it is a general problem of the whole configure.ac, so I think this is ready to merge.

Thanks for the check. Committed, closing ticket.

As for the inconsistency, yes, ideally we should use consistent style. Suggestions are welcome:-)
