DOWNLOAD_BOOST option is shown in cmake-gui (after running into the boost version check error message first), but WITH_BOOST isn't

also, maybe due to bug #72185, at the point that the configuration step has already been run once to collect possible parameters it is too late to add WITH_BOOST manually ...

only when first adding WITH_BOOST and DOWNLOAD_BOOST manually first using 
the [+ Add Entry] button the [Configure] step succeeds and building is possible

How to repeat:
* start cmake-gui
* hit [Configure] button
* then search for "boost"

the only two search matches are "DOWNLOAD_BOOST" and "BOOST_INCLUDE_DIR",
"WITH_BOOST" isn't part of the suggestions

Suggested fix:
Define WITH_BOOST as a PATH variable instead of an implicit internal one,
right now it shows up as 


in CMakeCache.txt
