Specifying Boost or third-party library paths to CMake

Osman Zakir
How do I specify the path to the installations of third-party libraries to CMake?  Both GUI and command line.  I want to specify the path to the Boost libraries.  I'd also like to know if I just need to specify the path to the Boost Root or if I also need to specify the path to the directory where the compiled binaries are.  Or both.

Use -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH:PATH=/path/to/boost:…

The root directory is sufficient; the other paths will all be found
relative to this location.
