That's one seriously ugly sentence I wrote. Fixed now. Thanks.

It's not quite that easy. Some of the stylesheets just "guess" at the
relative location of $BOOST_ROOT, and they guess wrong. This information
is easy to get in Boost.Build, so I'll pass it through to the stylsheets
and correct this ASAP.

Hmmm, good point. I've just added a section on configuring for local
copies of the DocBook DTD and XSL stylesheets, and I just reference that
section in "Getting Started".

Looks like I can't set an environment variable that way in Cygwin (or in
Windows without Cygwin, for that matter).
