Custom boards directory

Is it possible to set a custom path for my boards/ the same way that I do for pcores/ drivers/ bsp/ etc?  Ordinarily I'd imagine it would be set in the xmp, but obviously that doesn't exist when you need the xbd...

 

Cheers!

Re: Custom boards directory

Essentially, I'd like to keep my XBDs in the same source control as my other files.  ie:

 

~/MyProcessorIPLib/bsp

~/MyProcessorIPLib/drivers

~/MyProcessorIPLib/pcores

~/MyProcessorIPLib/sw_apps

 

Etc.  So I'd really like to use

 

~/MyProcessorIPLibs/boards

 

instead of

 

C:\Xilinx\13.2\ISE_DS\EDK\board\myname\boards\

 

Now, the definition of the local repo path is defined inside the project files, unfortunately.  This is fine for the cores and drivers, because the first step in my flow is to add my repo paths.  Unfortunately, the XBD is used in the initial creation of the XMP.  So, I'm hoping there's an environment variable or XPS setting I can use that will let me define my boards/.  I was hoping a symlink would do the trick, but the Windows shortcut doesn't.
