OK, I installed the whole boost src tree as /usr/local/src/boost_1_29_0

I installed my 3rd party package in my home directory, as ~/program_options.

Now let's try:

cd ~/program_options/libs/program_options/build
BOOST_BUILD_PATH=/usr/local/src/boost_1_29_0 bjam
../../../Jamrules: No such file or directory
...found 69 targets...
...updating 11 targets...
MkDir1 ../../../libs/program_options/build/bin
MkDir1 ../../../libs/program_options/build/bin/libprogram_options.a
MkDir1 ../../../libs/program_options/build/bin/libprogram_options.a/gcc
MkDir1 ../../../libs/program_options/build/bin/libprogram_options.a/gcc/debug
../src/cmdline.cpp:19:45: boost/program_options/cmdline.hpp: No such file or
../src/cmdline.cpp:20:44: boost/program_options/errors.hpp: No such file or

Well, that doesn't work. Is it possible to build 3rd party packages like this
outside the boost tree?
