One aspect of ease-of-use is the documentation.
Dave's http://www.boost.org/tools/build/build_system.htm is aimed at those
who want to understand the build system.
My http://www.boost.org/tools/build/index.html is aimed at those who just
want to type the equivalent of "./configure && make install", and don't
care about the details. But the page is really only half done; it doesn't
list targets available, for example.
I'm going to be too busy to improve it anytime soon so if anyone else would
like to try, I'm sure users would appreciate it.
