It could go there, or anywhere in your BOOST_BUILD_PATH if you don't
want to modify your boost installation. Did you miss that from my
previous message?

Well, yeah, it *is* the toolset. You can make as many as you
want. Just name them appropriately and off you go.

Uuuhhhh, actually, I think Beman's code is expecting to look in the
toolset .jam file and find some HTML in a comment. So you might need
to add that and put it in $BOOST_ROOT/tools/build in order for the
compiler status tables to be built. You'd better ask him about that
