I'm working hard at a lot of things in Boost.Threads preparing it for
the immenant submission. The old Jamfiles have been replaced with
new Jamfiles in different locations ;). Things have been modified to
follow the same general design as was used in Python, as I expect
this to be a closer basis for what Boost may eventually standardize
on for how to structure this stuff. So, if you check out all of
threads-initial you should now find that there's a
boost/libs/thread/build directory with a Jamfile for the library.
There's also a Jamfile under boost/libs/thread/test to build and run
the unit-test. The final Jamfile is in boost/libs/thread/example
which builds all the example programs. If you can't find them then
please let me know since that likely means I screwed something up in

BTW, the Jamfiles are currently known to work only with MSVC++, so if
you're using another compiler/platform I'm not sure how they'll work
for you.
