Subject: Using V4 pvCommonCPP module with external boost library

Hello,

I have run into a problem when building the V4 pvCommonCPP module into an IOC that also makes use of boost libraries.

My setup is

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.7 (Santiago)
pvCommonCPP version 4-0-2 (looking at README suggests boost version 1-53-0)
external boost installation version 1-48-0
Specifically I'm compiling ADCore 2-4 with V4 plugin/driver (V4 dependency) enabled and pluginTest unit tests (external boost dependency) enabled.

I cannot compile my application because the boost header files inside pvCommonCPP are found and are not compatible, and so I have the following questions...

1) Is pvCommonCPP required when compiling against V4 modules?  The V4 documentation has

"In addition for C++ there is the utility module pvCommonCPP. This contains boost, needed in particular for shared_pointers, and a microbenchmark framework. If you don't intend to use the latter then you may not need pvCommonCPP, depending on your compilers support for shared_pointers."

which suggests I wouldn't need it?  However, other V4 modules have been released against this version of the pvCommonCPP module and so the reference exists if I include any V4 modules.

2) Should the other V4 modules have been released against this pvCommonCPP module in my case, or could they have been released without the reference as I have shared pointers available anyway?

3) If pvCommonCPP is required is there a way to specify which version of boost it can be compiled against?

4) If using pvCommonCPP along with it's version of boost, does the whole set of boost libraries get built and installed?

Thanks, Alan
