The current implementations of boost related macros doesn't auto detect dynamic libraries on Mac OS X systems as the file suffix is "dylib" which is untested in those macros. The patch attached added those checks. Current version do the following:

+ Check libraries on nix systems in order of .so, .dylib, .a*, so that dynamic libraries are detected first.
+ Remove bashism (use of curly braces like "{" "}")
+ Fix some incorrect sed regular expression (usually a* -> a.*)

Please review. Thanks.
