Bug Description

 I've been using macro AX_BOOST_UNIT_TEST_FRAMEWORK from autoconf-archive without problems until an upgrade of boost 1.53. In my I have the following macros:


But running ./configure fails:

checking for boostlib >= 1.20.0... yes
checking whether the Boost::Unit_Test_Framework library is available... yes
configure: error: Could not find a version of the library!

 If I roll back to boost 1.49 with the command:
apt-get install libboost-test1.49-dev libboost1.49-dev

 then everything works fine.

 More info:
 it looks that it works again with boost 1.54 (apt-get install libboost-test1.54-dev libboost1.54-dev). However boost 1.53 is still the default being installed.
