I think it uses the gcc toolset regardless as a target to put the XIncluded
document file in so it will work within bjam/BBv2 (I could have this wrong,
as I am not a Boost.Build expert).

Have you checked the catalog.xml file to see if the namespace aliases are
pointing to the correct locations?

Does it work when you don't set the XSL/DTD environment variables, but
download from the internet? (This will be slow, but it may show if the error
is with the program settings or the XSL/DTD settings).

Are you building from the Windows or cygwin/Linux shell? If you are using
cygwin/Linux, you could try something like:

   using boostbook : /cygdrive/d/devel/libraries/docbook/xsl/
      : /cygdrive/d/devel/libraries/docbook/dtd/
