Install RDKit

As of July 2015 on Debian 8.1, "sudo apt-get install rdkit" seems be working fine (with own built boost shared objects)"

git clone https://github.com/rdkit/rdkit
cd rdkit
export RDBASE=`pwd`
mkdir build; cd build
cmake -DBOOST_ROOT=/usr/local/boost-1_62 -DRDK_BUILD_INCHI_SUPPORT=ON \
-DRDK_BUILD_PYTHON_WRAPPERS=OFF ..
