Use -batch configure option to avoid being asked these questions; the
defaults are fine in most cases.
The -i8 option is default on 64-bit systems, there is no need to give
that option unless you're compiling on a 32-bit OS.
Molpro needs boost, but it should automatically download and build this
during the configure process.
