Yes. I figured this bit out. I noted in another post.
This was daunting at first. It is conforting to see a
./configure, because I know exactly where to go from there.
There were confusing errors because I mistook an executable in
Reece's gui.zip for a generated executable, and the error
messages made absolutely no sense. It really threw me.
Now that that issue has been resolved, Boost.Build is beginning
to explain itself.
