Thanks to Rene Rivera, it just got a whole lot easier to use the Boost
CVS state with your own non-boost projects in Boost.Build v1. Details

Using External Projects

To use dependencies such as libraries from another project tree, first
use the project rule to declare a project id and location for the
external project. Then add the appropriate external dependency target
specification to your program's list of sources. For example, if you
are developing a program which uses the Boost.Threads library, you
might write::

  project boost : /home/dave/boost-cvs ;

in your Jamrules file, and place::


in your target's list of sources.
