FindBoost: Prints wrong version/components and disrespects `QUIET`, when using Boost CMake package
Bug: When having Boost installed with its own CMake package (which seems to be the default since Boost
FindBoost.cmakemay print wrong status messages.
- Also, those status messages are not respecting the
Example: When having Boost
1.70.0 installed, a
find_package(Boost 1.67 QUIET REQUIRED COMPONENTS program_options container OPTIONAL_COMPONENTS foobar)
-- Found Boost 1.70.0 at /home/dklein/boost_1_70_0_install/lib/cmake/Boost-1.70.0 -- Requested configuration: QUIET REQUIRED COMPONENTS program_options;container OPTIONAL_COMPONENTS foobar -- Found boost_headers 1.70.0 at /home/dklein/boost_1_70_0_install/lib/cmake/boost_headers-1.70.0 -- Found boost_program_options 1.70.0 at /home/dklein/boost_1_70_0_install/lib/cmake/boost_program_options-1.70.0 -- libboost_program_options.a -- Adding boost_program_options dependencies: headers -- Found boost_container 1.70.0 at /home/dklein/boost_1_70_0_install/lib/cmake/boost_container-1.70.0 -- libboost_container.a -- Adding boost_container dependencies: headers -- Boost 1.67 found. -- Found Boost components: program_options;container;foobar
None of the above should be printed, because
QUIET was passed (The first 9 lines are printed by the CMake package and the issue is reported upstream). The last 3 lines are printed by
FindBoost.cmake and contain wrong version number and a wrong list of components.
(Example output produced with CMake
3.12.1 on Fedora 29, but looking at the code, I believe, the bug is still present in
