But to do this you need to build (and install someplace in your PATH)
or download bjam first. Its not hard, but this may not be imediately
obvious to the newbie.
I really think the Getting Started guide is more than adequate, and is
concise and easy to follow. There are gigantic yellow numbers next to
the important steps. Perhaps an "ultra-quick-start for the command
line averse" could be added, but really how much more hand-holding
does one need?
